In Grateful and Respectful Recognition of His Untiring Efforts

Co the Students, the Graduates and the friends of the 
University of Coronto, Greeting :— 

O those who have fought the good fight and 

finished their course, and to those who are 

still in the race, Torontonensis gives greeting. 

To those who are standing on the threshold 

of the busy, work-a-day world, clinging with 

the fondness of a last sweet embrace to the 

quiet life they have known and loved for the 

four years of their course ; to those who are 

passing through the middle stage of their metamorphosis in their junior 

year; to the Sophomores, just awakening to the 
joys, the delights, the beauties, the charm of college 
life; and to the Freshmen, the most fortunate of a most 
fortunate company, in that they have still before 
them the best, the happiest years of their lives — 
to all of these Torontonensis makes her humble 
courtesy, trusting that she may interest all and 
instruct a few while they are yet wanderers in 
the academic grove, and that in after time, when 
the experiences of their University life are hidden 
in the grey mist of distant years, this volume may 
serve as the key to unlock a treasury of sweet 
and precious memories.

historical Sketch of University of Toronto* 

T was just one hundred years ago that a Royal Charter was granted making provision for the estab- 
lishment of what afterwards became the University of Toronto. To General Simcoe, the First Governor 
of Upper Canada, belongs the credit of starting the movement of higher education here, though as his 
term of office ended in 1796, it was not during his administration that the project assumed definite 

The words of the petition addressed to His Majesty George III., in \ 797, were : u That His Majesty 
would be graciously pleased to direct his Government in the Province to appropriate a certain portion of the 
waste lands of the Crown as a fund for the establishment and support of a respectable Grammar School, in 
each district thereof; and also a College or University for the instruction of youth in the different branches 
of liberal knowledge." One year later, in J 798, a large tract of waste lands were set aside for the endowment of 
the future University. 

Though all this happened an hundred years ago, the University of Toronto is by no means a century old. 
It was not till thirty years after that a Royal Charter was issued for the establishment of a College near the 
town of York, as Toronto was then called. This College then received the name of " King's College," but 
it was fifteen years more before faculties were established, a college building erected, and instruction of 
students commenced. 

In its early history, religious questions were the cause of much agitation and dispute among the authorities 
and friends of the little College, until finally in J 849 the constitution of King's College underwent important 
modifications. The name was changed from u King's College " to the " University of Toronto," and the government 
of the new University was handed over to a Senate, of which a number of the members were appointed by the 
Crown. All instruction in Divinity was discontinued and the faculty gave instruction simply in arts, in medicine, 
and in law. 


But this constitution remained in force for only a very few years. In the constitution of the then recently estab- 
lished University of London and University College of London, England, the authorities saw a solution for many of the 
difficulties that beset the struggling Canadian Hall of Learning. Following closely the constitution of the new 
English University, two new corporations were organized in Toronto, the University of Toronto and University 
College. To the former was assigned the work of examination and the conferring of degrees in all the faculties; 
to the latter, the instruction of the students in arts. 

In the history of the University there was now a lull in making and changing of constitutions. For more than 
thirty years the institution performed its work, and performed it well, under the provisions of the Act of 1853. A 
welcome opportunity was given to the University to learn and adapt itself to the conditions of the time and the 
country and to develop itself accordingly. 

The new University buildings, which were begun in 1856, are a pleasing indication of the spirit of the University 
at that time. Since the foundation of King's College the faculty and students had been housed now here, now there. 
At one time lectures were given in the old Parliament Buildings, but on the return of the Legislature to Toronto 
these quarters had to be given up. The classes were driven from post to pillar for a few years until the magnificent 
building now known as University College was erected. 

To Sir Edmund Head, an old Oxford Professor, who was then Governor-General, belongs much of the credit for 
bringing about the erection of this beautiful structure. Work was commenced on it in 1856, and two years later, 
on the 4th of October, Sir Edmund placed in position the top stone of the graceful tower. The building is the most 
perfect specimen of Norman architecture on the continent, and is undoubtedly one of the finest College buildings in 
the world. To-day it stands as an enduring monument to the enterprise, the ability and the exquisite taste of the 
University's promoters during those years. 

From 1853 the constitution of the University remained practically unchanged until ten years ago, when both 
University College and the University of Toronto were remodelled by the University Federation Act. The object of 
this Act was to concentrate the energies of those working for higher education by effecting the union of the various 
denominational universities of Ontario with the Provincial University. 

Since the passing of this Act the faculty and students of the Victoria University, representing the Methodist body, 
have removed from Cobourg to Toronto. The colleges of various other denominations have also entered into federation 
with the University. 

Various handsome buildings have also been erected during the last few years. A Library, a Biological Building, 
a Gymnasium, a Chemical Building that are models of utility and beauty, now grace the University grounds. The 
School of Practical Science, which is now recognized as one of the finest engineering colleges on the continent, was 
affiliated in J 889, and Colleges of Dentistry, Pharmacy, Music, Agriculture and Veterinary Science have also entered 
into affiliation. 

In J 890, on the occasion of the Annual Conversazione, February 14th, the Main Building was partially destroyed 
by fire, but with wonderful promptness the structure was restored and extended, and many modern improvements

HERE are few such precious architectural gems of antique beauty 
in America as the Main Building of the University of Toronto. 
Situated in Queen's Park, an extensive oasis in the centre of a 
large and busy city, it enjoys a splendid site. 
Matthew Arnold and other eminent critics have been charmed by the 
chaste style and the exquisite beauty of the building, and it has been pronounced 
to be perhaps the most perfect specimen of Norman architecture in the world. 
When the British Association for the Advancement of Science met in 
Toronto last summer, most of the meetings were held in the University 
College, and in the words of the London (Eng.) Times of August \ 9th, all 
were ** delighted with the charming appearance of the University 
and its surroundings, and many old members admit that rarely 
has the Association met in a more delightful place.'' 

Lord Lister, the venerable President of the Association, was 
especially charmed with the beauty of the great grey stone pile, 
and in his address at the Civic Reception, Wednesday, August 
\ 8th, he said : " When I consider the vast extent of this city, 
the greatness and nobleness of your buildings, your splendid 
installation of electric cars, and not the least, the exquisite taste 
of your new University Buildings and the beauty of the scenery 
in which they are located, I think you are to be congratulated. 
I consider that the University is fortunate in having such a 
magnificent site, which they have so beautifully cultivated."

>HEN one undertakes to write the history of his 
graduating class and allows his memory to travel 
back over the four years of his college life, and when 
he experiences again the feelings that he has under- 
gone — the feelings of disappointment and success, the feelings of warm 
friendship and of petty jealousy — he is forced to ask himself, Why is 
it so ? What good has all this been to me ? And the answer is simple, 
simply u experientia docet." These successes, these disappointments 
broaden our minds. We regard man with far more tolerant views. 
We are enabled to understand his views and to appreciate his 
feelings, and there comes to us a broader conception of life, bringing in its train the independent spirit of manhood. 

And when one reflects on the events of his college career — one's successes, one's failures, one's disappointments, 
one's worries — how petty they all seem ! how small ! One rather turns to the warm friendships, the close companionship 
he has enjoyed with his fellow-students. He thinks of the thousand and one little touches that go to make friends, 
the hearty hand-clasp after success, the encouraging clap on the back that meets failure. He reflects on all these and 
much more and as he thinks, it suddenly dawns on him like a hideous nightmare, a thing unreal, that this must all 
come to a close now. No more will he saunter arm-in-arm across the campus, no more struggle in debate in 
the ** Lit," no more take part in a class election, no more attend a Hallowe'en celebration. From the short-lived 
monarchy of a senior with all its attendant dignity and importance, from the monarchy of this little world of ours, 


he goes out to be a mere cipher in the rushing, bustling world of the outside. No wonder a feeling of sadness steals 
over him, a feeling of sadness like unto none other grief. Pity us, O juniors, sophomores, freshmen! for we are 
indeed deserving of your sympathy. 

Ninety-eight's course through college has been one which reflects the greatest credit on all its members. No great 
movement in the college but which has been ably backed and assisted by Ninety-eight. As freshmen in the palmy 
days of '95 we were regarded as the liveliest and most energetic class in the University. With advancing years we 
grew more staid and dignified, yet lost not that unflagging interest in our class and college which had characterized 
us at our inception. We have cheered on our teams in the inter-year matches, and our speakers in the inter-year 
debates, not always to victory, 'tis true, but what of that ? We have fought hard and valiantly against each other in 
our class and Literary Society elections and have come out all the better friends. We have attended class receptions 
and conversats. The ladies of our class have won fame for themselves for their beauty and amiability. We have 
done, in fact, everything in our course a class ought and does, and now on the threshold of our exit, we have 
immortalized ourselves by publishing for the first time in the history of Toronto University a u Torontonensis." All 
glory to Ninety-eight ! May she in the list of graduating classes always shine resplendent ! May she always be the 
envied of the envied! 

To-day we are a unit together, to-morrow we are a scattered people, yet still a unit, for are we not all bound 
together in the mystical number Ninety-eight ? Our duty in the future is, as it was in the past, by individual success 
to make illustrious the class of Ninety-eight, and by accomplishing this shed a halo of honor and glory around our 
Alma Mater. Let each man and and each woman think of this, let each achievement and each meritorious deed 
rebound to the credit of Ninety-eight, let no envious thoughts arise from each other's successes, for will we not all shine 
in the reflected glory ? And if the thought of bringing honor upon our college and our class spur us on to a grand 
success in life, the years spent in the corridors of old 'Varsity will not have been in vain. — Vale.

qiUliam )Mel\>iUe jMartin. 

IT was in the "wee sma' hours" of August 23rd, 1876, that Melville Martin, as he is 
called at home, or Billy Martin, as he is known to the men of college, came down to this 
wicked world with a falling star. Since then his star has been steadily on the rise. He studied 
the Classics at Clinton High School, and incidentally used to fight a good deal with Robert 
Reynolds Glenn, who, subsequently at college, became his bosom friend. In his first year he 
devoted himself entirely to his stud es, but in the spring of '95 the ''lust for office" asserted itself 
in him. He never ran for Mayor of Greater New York, but there are few other positions to 
which he has not aspired. He soon acquired a reputation of being able to attain to any student 
office on which he set his heart. In his second year he was treasurer of the Classical Association, 
and in his third he was representative on the Athletic Directorate and captain of the II. Association 
Football Team. In his fourth year he became secretary-treasurer of the Athletic Association, 
that he might be able to send complimentary tickets for the Athletic At Home to his best friends. 
In his final year Martin also played on the I. Association and the Year Rugby teams, and the 
Literary Society chose him its representative to the Osgoode Hall At Home. 

Richard fialiburton Greer, 

CHIS Toronto youth is still trying to find out why he came to college. He says himself 
that it certainly wasn't to study, nor to hold office, nor to advance any new theory 
on the subject of "How to Play the Game." However, he has undoubtedly 'proved himself 
to be a good student and a clean sport, and has held his share of offices. In his second and 
third years he played on the Junior Rugby Team, and in his fourth he was a representative on 
the Executive of the Athletic Association. But on the campus, it is as a baseball player that 
Dick is a bright and shining light. In his second and third years he played on the University 
Team, and is one of the best short-stops in Canada. "When the team elects officers next spring, 
it is not likely that anyone will oppose him for the captaincy. In his third year he was 
a councillor of the Political Science Club. It was only during the latter part of his course that 
he graced any of the social functions with his presence, but his fellow students, men and 'women 
alike, soon recognized that he was a most original and substantial fellow, and a most witty and 
companionable companion. 


j^orman Robert Douglas Sinclair. 

CHIS classical worthy from Whitby would have had a longer name had not the minister 
been rushed for time on the day of the christening. Throughout his college course 
Norman Robert Douglas has been noted especially for three things: his ' large appetite, his 
studious habits and his poor puns — with the accent on the ultimate. Though he has never held 
office in the University he has always taken a considerable interest in student affairs, escorting his 
oak club to the " Lit " every Friday evening. In his studies he always took a high place, enter- 
ing the University with a scholarship and maintaining a good stand throughout his course. If 
there were only some Keeley Institute for the treatment of punsters, N. R. D. might some day 
turn out to be not such a bad fellow. 

James Vanwych Henderson. 

TOU might easily have attended every meeting of the Literary Society in your four years, 
you might have promenaded at every class reception, danced at every conversat, eaten, 
drunk and smoked at every dinner, and sat and slept at every public debate throughout your 
whole course, and yet never seen the studious face of James Vanwyck Henderson. But 
you cannot have haunted the library to any extent, nor lurked around Lecture Rooms 7 and 8, 
without seeing this "prince of pluggers." He has made very few acquaintances during his four 
years at college, and has never held nor ever sought an office. All his attention has been centred 
on his classics and by hard work he has risen from one of the lowest positions in his class to 
one of the very highest, being a candidate for the McCaul Gold Medal in his senior year. 

Reginald {Melville Chase. 

CHE subject of this sketch is another gallant who f orsook the cold bosom of '97 and flew 
to the arms of the younger, the sweeter, the handsomer '98. To look at him you 
would never suspect Reginald Melville Chase of such fickleness, though desertion of '97 would 
b2 excusable in anybody. Chase is one of those strange characters that are always treated with 
respect for fear that they may some day become great geniuses. He is well-nigh as silent as 
sphinx, and few men in college have ever had the honor of ten words conversation with him. 
He has three manias — a mania for attending classical lectures, a mania for drawing funny pictures 
in his note-books, and a mania for fencing. He is now recognized as the greatest expert with the 
foil among the undergraduates and in his fourth year was chosen secretary of the Fencing Club. 

Percy Cdhittington Saunders. 

"^TOT in the whole of the University is there such a hard, such a conscientious, such an 
I * intelligent worker as Percy Saunders. His department is Classics, and the only reason 
why he has not stood first or second all through his course is that he has devoted a large part 
of his time to studying the Natural Sciences. He was prepared for the University in the Jarvis 
Street Collegiate Institute, Toronto, and at his matriculation in J 894 he won the first scholarship in 
Classics and Mathematics. As he is of a quiet disposition, he never took any very prominent stand 
in student affairs, but throughout his course he was a constant, though silent, attendant at both the 
Literary Society and the Classical Association. In his third year he was secretary of the Classical 
Association, and proved himself to be an earnest and energetic officer. 

Charles Pickens Creigbton, B.H. 

iy TfOST of the men in the class of '98 will remember the afternoon of Friday, October 
J -^ 5th, 1894, when they gathered on the campus preparatory to marching, like sheep to 
the slaughter, to the Convocation exercises in Massey Music Hall. The ninety-eighters were 
freshmen then, and the sophomores, led by a tall thin youth with a classic cast of countenance, 
were planning a warm reception for the " green 'uns " after the meeting. That tall, poetic youth 
was Charles Dickens Creighton (sometimes called "Mary" by the vulgar littTe boys), and on 
that autumn afternoon he carried a blue and white silk banner on which was the strange device 
« >97 # » From that day the class of '98 took an interest in him. In the fall of '97, when he joined 
the class that he had once helped to "hustle," he received a royal welcome. In his first three 
years Creighton took honors in Classics and Philosophy, but as he graduated simply with honors 
in Philosophy, he returned this year to take honor Classics. 

CdUUarn lobn 6lder. 

H QUIET and unassuming lad has Willie John Elder prcved himself to be from the first 
day of his college course. He was reared in the peaceful burg of Hensall, and from 
there came to one of the Collegiate Institutes in Toronto. In J894 he matriculated, winning a 
scholarship, and his stand in the class lists has been a distinguished one. The department of 
Classics has always been his standby, but in his first year he took honors in Modern Languages 
also, and in his second, combined Classics and Political Science. In his junior year he confined 
himself to one department and at the examinations stood second in his class. This year he is a 
candidate for the McCaul Gold Medal. He was never ambitious for office, but in his second 
year he was pursuaded to accept the position of critic in the Year Society.

Gordon jMortimer Clark, 

CHS monsieur de la. noblesse is one of Toronto's Four Hundred. He was born in Toronto 
and was prepared for matriculation at Upper Canada College. He has been to the fore 
in all society events throughout his course and was one of the most enthusiastic and useful 
members of the Decoration Committee of the Conversazione in his first and second years. In 
his sophomore year he was one of the most prominent promoters of the class dinner, which 
proved such a brilliant success. He has been popular in his year and has acted in the 
capacities of judge and critic. He has also defended the honor of the class on the Rugby 
Football teams in his first, second and third years. 

frank Cecil f)arper. 

eVER since he cracked his first joke Harper has been a funny man. In his first year 
he was noted for the exuberance of his wit, and all through his course he has killed 
man after man with his jokes. Gifted by nature with a pleasant manner and an open way, 
Frank has made many friends for himself during his course. He with his friend Howitt 
have always been great churchmen, never being known to miss a church reception. His 
natural broadmindedness put him above belonging to any sect or creed upon occasions like 
these. He has held several offices, among others being secretary of his class in '97 and curator of 
the Literary Society in his final year. In his first year he took first-class honors in Classics, 
but changed to Political Science. 

7obn Alexander Wilson . 

CHIS fine young specimen of Canadian manhood first saw the light of day in Alliston, 
sometime subsequent to the time when Adam used to send conversation lozenges to Eve. 
He matriculated from the Owen Sound Collegiate Institute, though he had also spent some 
years in Collingwood and Orangeville schools. In his younger days he had aspirations to 
become a second Cicero and entered an oratorical contest, winning a gold medal for the 
best oration. Since entering this institution he has settled down and become a "plug," perhaps 
the only " plug " in the general course. 

Victor Kitto. 

BRAMPTON, that mighty mother of mighty college men, lays claim to Kittc. Being a 
student in the department of Mineralogy, and consequently being in the laboratory nearly 
all his time, and as he is also a very quiet youth, saying on an average one sentence a day and that 
only in reply to a question, this article must necessarily be short. But judging from his high stand 
in the competitive examinations (having only himself to compete with), in which he always comes 
out victor, there is every reason to feel confident that he will some day make his mark assaying in the 

Henry f)arold JSarraway. 

NINETY-SEVEN expected that it would be able to claim H. H. Narraway, but in his 
graduating year that gentleman changed his mind and decided to join '98. In the days 
when he still clung to his old love, he made a brilliant name for himself : in his third year he 
was 2nd vice-president of the Literary and Scientific Society, and held the same office in his 
Class Society. That he will soon become as popular in '98 as he was in '97, his friends are 
fully confident. He is a great chess enthusiast, being one of the founders of the Chess Club, 
and being, without doubt, the best player among the undergraduates. He intends to make law 
his profession. 

Charles Huld. 

IN form and feature, face and limb, Charlie Auld would make an ideal Wang, and like that 
historic personage he is sometimes very amusing. When he rises to speak, at the " Lit," 
the merry little twinkle in his eye always prepares one for a hearty laugh, Charles, being a 
mathematical student, and, as such, too busy, one would think, with higher plane curves to think 
of the lower ones, yet is a great admirer of the system of co-education, in theory and practice. 
Before coming to the University he taught school for some years and took a course in Pedagogy, 
and after graduation he will resume the wielding of the birch rod. He has always taken 
considerable interest in student affairs, being in his fourth year president of the Mathematical and 
Physical Society. 


George fiarold Black. 

6EORGETOWN sent down a representative to the class of '97 in the person of George 
H. Black, but when '98 came to College and George saw the many attraction its 
possessed, he deserted his old love and, fickle man that he was, " kep company " with the 
younger one. He has always been a prominent man in: 'his class. His pleasing manner and 
amiable ways have won for him a host of friends, and his good looks have played havoc on the 
tender side of the house. But George is no society butterfly, for he is a man possessed of 
splendid business and executive ability, which his class mates quickly recognized. He has been 
on the Business Board of THE VARSITY throughout his course. In his third year he was 
second vice-president of the Literary Society, and in his last, his interest in the Glee Club was 
rewarded by his election to the important position of president of the club. He was also chairman 
of the board that managed the Glee, Banjo, Guitar and Mandolin Club concert, the great success 
of which reflects much to his credit. He is also musical director of the senior year. His department 
has been Natural Sciences, but it is his business ability that is chiefly recognized, and every one 
who knows him predicts for him a bright career. 

frederich Hdam Cleland. 

IF there is a man in the University who is suited for the life of a politician that man is 
Frederick Adam Cleland. The Liberal leaders should keep their eyes on Freddie, for if 
hard studying doesn't kill him before he graduates in Natural Science and Medicine, he will some 
day make a fine party whip. He was born and reared in Meaford, where he also received his 
training for the University. Though never too close a student or averse to those little bits of fun 
which make undergraduate life the joy it is, he has nevertheless done well in his course. He has 
also found time to take an interest in all departments of college amusements and this has had its 
reward in the shape of a share in their management. In his first year he was a member of the 
Committee of Arrangements of the first Freshman Banquet ever held in the College and also 
played on the Class Rugby Football Team, as he did later in his sophomore and also in his 
senior years. In his sophomore year he went on the Lacrosse tour, and as a junior acted as 
secretary of the Intercollege Lacrosse Association. He was also a member of the Cricket Team 
in his junior year. This year his honors have been many and various. He holds the onerous 
position of business manager of VARSITY and is captain of the Lacrosse Team. In addition to 
these important duties he is a Councillor on the Executive of the Class Society and acted as 
reader at the J 54th Public Debate of the Literary Society. 

6dward Cflentworth Beatty. 

IN his quiet home at Thorold, Eddie Beatty was born at a very early age, and from 
that time to this, his home has been much less quiet than it was before his arrival. At 
school he was always a good little boy, and passed his entrance examination when he was 
exceptionally young. With marvellous avidity he devoured the stores of learning on the 
intellectual shelves of Harbord Street Collegiate Institute, and in the Fall of '94, when the 
University gates opened, Eddie, school bag in hand, was the first to rush in. In the Political 
Science course he soon teazed his professors with perplexing problems. He is a Rugby 
player of no mean ability and as quarter-back and captain of the Molecules, obtained for 
himself and team Dominion Championship honors. In the presence of ladies he is most 
bashful, but hopes in a few years to overcome this inconvenient perversion of nature. In athletics 
he has always taken a lively interest, being atheltic director of his class in his third year and 
on the Executive of the Football Club in his final year. He is also councillor of the senior 
class and secretary of the Political Science Club. With his natural ability and entertaining 
manner, there is good reason to hope that Edward Wentworth Beatty, Q. T., F. O. X., will 
give Blackstone himself a rub for honors. 

JJdUUam George fitzGerald. 

CHE man in the moon was full when Fitz was born, which fact is amply demonstrated 
by his huge rotundity. Careful geometrical and trigonometrical calculations place the 
weight of Little Willie at between two hundred and seventy-three and a quarter to four. Of 
the law which says a fat man should be good-natured, large-hearted, generous, jovial and 
above saying a mean thing of anyone, Willie has grown up a living example. His cardiac 
member being so large and tender naturally could not long withstand the onslaught of the 
fair sex, and many a maiden's heart has beaten furiously, yet coyly, as she has seen his 
manly form stride across the campus. His brain is of a size proportionate to the rest of his 
anatomy, and he has always taken a high place in his class, winning the Blake Scholarship 
at matriculation, and in the second year the William Mulock Scholarship. In his freshman 
year, his sterling weight gave him the offices of councillor in the Literary Society and judge in 
his year. In his third year he was on the Dinner and Conversat Committees and is second 
vice-president of the senior year. 


fcilirrirn *"'' 






Benjamin Archibald Coleman- 

IN one of the rooms in Wycliffe College this Markham youth pursues his studies in theology 
and arts. During his course at the High School it suddenly dawned upon him that if the 
minister who officiated at the christening had put the initials after, instead of before, his name it would 
not have been necessary for him to attend college. In fact he saw that he could very easily win his 
degree by simply turning himself around. For this reason he emigrated to Toronto, and set himself 
to work at the task. Being so busy at this, he has never had time to take an interest in anything else, 
and so he has held no offices. After he has turned himself around and been ordained he will 
undoubtedly be a great success in the ministry. 

lames Howard Lemon. 

LEMON is of the northern variety. He came to college in the fall of '94 and elected to wrestle 
with the Natural Sciences. Throughout his course he has pursued his studies with remarkable 
energy and his toil has each year been fully rewarded by the high stand which he has taken at 
the examinations. As a worker he is second to few if any, and he has successfully avoided the 
turmoils of student party strife. Though quiet and unassuming he is regarded as one of the men 
who, in after years, will bring much credit on the glorious class of '98. 

Charles )McLean fraser. 

BLUEVALE boasts of having sent this studious son to college. He is short but broad, and 
is as hard as nails. He wears, when he is dressed for Sunday, a cane of the style of 
Methuselah, and a smi'e patented for Charlie's own use. He is deeply engaged in the study of 
the Natural Sciences and has hopes of some day rivalling Darwin. He thinks about this so hard 
sometimes that he often forgets to shave — hence he is famous, far and wide, for the luxuriant crop of 
capillary appendages that occasionally become attached to his face. Dame rumor says that they are 
not the only things that become attached to I that face, but of course that is neither here nor there. In 
his fourth year he was elected secretary of the Natural Science Association. 
' 41 

T)enry Hffentworth Gundy- 

LIKE his friend, A. W. Smith, Harry Gundy is a very particular fellow, and it took him 
some time before he could find a congenial year with which to graduate. At last '98 came 
along, and recognizing its manifestly superior qualities, he joined it and enrolled in Classics. His 
freshman year he spent in University College, but he has since honored Victoria College with his 
presence. That presence is a very charming presence, by the way, and his fascinating smile and 
cute moustache have won for him many a sly glance from the fair sex. But though decidedly 
a ladies' man he is something more. He is an athletic enthusiast and something of an athlete 
himself. In his junior and senior years he represented Victoria on the Committee of the University 
Athletic Association. As junior he was second vice-president, and as senior first vice-president 
of the .Victoria Athletic Union. His forte is hockey, and he plays on both the hockey and the 
football :teams of Victoria. 

Hrtbur H^UUarn Hnderson. 

CHIS youth who, since a very early age, has been blessed with an exceeding bright (not 
to say light) head, is known to his friends as "Pop," and is accordingly entered on the 
classical bill-of-fare along with " Pastry " Sinclair and " Bun " McCracken. He came to college 
in the Fall of '93 with all the knowledge the worthy instructors of Bishop Ridley School could 
cram into his carroty cranium. He quickly became very popular, but as his constitutional 
bashfulness made him shrink from being lionized, he soon began to show his dislike for the Class 
of '97, and at the end of his second year decided to honor himself by becoming a member of 
Class '98. That hospitable year received him with open arms, and allotted him a seat in the 
department of Classics. Being naturally of a retiring disposition and preferring to see his friends 
"have the honors and incidentally the work, he never sought office. After graduating he will 
study law, having convinced himself that his head will make him a shining light in that 


Robert j^orriss JMerritt. 

IT was as Apollo was warbling to Venus that Merritt was born in the Village of 
Smithville, and as years passed he grew up a vocal soloist of considerable ability. 
Between songs he studied hard at school and now has hopes of graduating in Mathematics. 
Being so shy and retiring he never sought office, but when driven to it, filled the chair of 
musical director of his class in his junior year. His interest in the Glee Club was rewarded 
in his sophomore year, when he acted as curator for the club. During the greater part of his 
course he has been a member of the Y. M. C. A. quartette. 

CCUUiam francis Dansford. 

LIKE the other wise men he hails from the East, having received his early education at 
Montreal and Ottawa. He, too, comes of ministerial stock, and after courses of study at 
Albert and Woodstock colleges he entered Victoria University with honors in Moderns. In social 
life " Wally " is genial, enthusiastic and chivalrous, and these qualities have made him a great 
favorite. His popularity is evidenced by the offices he holds. To his executive ability as president 
of the Victoria College Lawn Tennis Club, and as business manager of the Victoria Mandolin 
and Guitar Club, much of the success of these organizations is due. 

Rowland Rector jMode. 

LIKE his illustrious namesake in the Homeric legend, Hector Mode is quite a good-looking 
fellow. His sweet simple gazelle-like eyes would make him the lion of the '98 receptions 
if only he could shake off his retiring disposition. With rare wisdom, however, he stuck 
to the study of Mathematics during his course and did not allow his mind to run away sentimentally 
of its own free will. Rumor has it, though, that a sweet young thing down in Vankleek Hill 
often thinks a la mode, so perhaps he is not so stony-hearted as he makes believe. In his senior 
year he was chosen to fill the office of corresponding secretary of the Mathematical Society. He 
has not yet decided in what path of life he will shine, but there is no doubt but that he will 
shine brightly in whatever path he may choose. 

^obn CCUlberforce Dobbs. 

CHIS enterprising and modest athlete saw the light of day only a few years ago in 
London — the City of the Woods. There he spent his childhood and early youth. He 
entered University College in the Fall of '94 and unless he breaks his record, which he 
frequently does, he will graduate in the allotted time. During his course, besides doing himself 
justice in his classes, he has distinguished himself in sociology and out-door athletics. So 
deservedly popular has he been that many of the most coveted offices in his year and college 
have been practically presented to him, all of which he has filled 'with credit to himself and 
to the entire satisfaction of his constituents. He has been athletic director and member of the 
Athletic Association for four years. During his last three years he has been quarter back on 
the I. Rugby Team and had the undisputed right to be called one of the few star quarters 
of Canada. His place on the baseball team was always right field, where he played an 
important part in the glorious \ictories of that club in its tour through Canada and the Eastern 
States. In his last year he held simultaneously the positions of captain I. Rugby Team, 
president Athletic Association, business manager of the first Torontonensis, and Y. M. C. A. 
councillor, etc. Though not ambitious of being a social lion yet his genial presence has 
been much courted both inside and beyond University circles. He has every sought to develop 
all sides of his character, rather than distinguish himself in class lists, in order to fit himself 
for a business career, and one does not need to be a prophet or the son of a prophet to bespeak 
for him in that sphere certain unqualified success. 





Hlexander HffUUarn Smith. 

HWAY back sometime in the middle ages "Allie" came down to the University from 
Whitby. Ever since he has been waiting patiently, hoping to find an agreeable and congenial 
class with which to graduate. When '98 came along he joined it as soon as he could, so that he 
might be able to accompany Howitt and Harper to church receptions. Alexander William, or 
" Dack " as he has been nick-named for some dark, hidden and mysterious reason, has always 
managed throughout his course to have enough friends at the T. P. L. C. to receive invitations to 
all the social functions there. Indeed he is very popular, and during his extended sojourn at 
Varsity his pleasant manner and open-hearted generosity and sympathy have won for him a host 
of friends, and it will be one of the pleasures of '98 men, after they leave college, to recall to 
mind their fine old friend, "Smithy." He has always been a hard student, Classics being his 
department. Occasionally, perhaps two or three times a year, he is missed from his accustomed 
haunts for a day or two, and there is a rumor that what the college loses a certain eastern burg 
gains on these occasions. It is interesting to note that whenever he returns from one of these 
little jaunts, he is in the happiest, merriest mood imaginable. In his fourth year he was prophet 
on the Class Committee. He is going to Pedagogy next fall and will some day be a learned 

Charles Stewart JMacDonald. 

CHE artist of Corontonetisis got a snap shot of this individual on an autumn afternoon, 
as he was strolling through Rosedale, dressed in a walking costume with knickers. It was 
intended to have the photograph accompany this sketch, but when the picture was developed no 
Charlie was to be seen, the camera fiend having taken a side view of him. He has 6 ft. 4 sec. 
longitude and 1 ft. 3 sec. latitude, and wears a collar J 3 x 4. He is as long-headed as he is 
long-legged, and so, during his college course, he did not interfere with class affairs, spending his 
precious time working at the general course and attending to his arduous social duties, which 
consisted of performing in the front row of the Guitar Club. He received his preparatory 
education at Bishop Ridley College. In his senior year he was on the Cricket Club Committee 
and the Banjo and Guitar Club Executive : on the former, because he once saw a cricket bat, and 
on the latter, because — oh, well, because you're not such a bad looking fellow, Charlie. 


Cautiam P'Hrcy Caskey. 

^yTTHEN Caskey first came to college many a student mistook hiTi for William Dale, M.A., 
^^^ sometime Professor of Latin. Owing to his side whiskers and his air of deep learning 
this was quite natural, though, for a long time, Caskey couldn't understand why so many of 
his fellow-students "capped" him, as they say in Oxford. He hails from St. Thomas, the 
Railroad City, and being like that burg, quiet and retiring, he never pushed himself into prominence 
in student affairs, but preferred to spend his time working at his studies in the general course. 
Those who know him best say he is a good student and a good friend. 

Lome fbrbes Robertson. 

fOR some years studied hard at the Stratford College Institute, waiting patiently for the 
Class of '98 to come to college. Hearing one September day in 1894 that such a 
class was likely to put in an appearance here that year, he packed up his smile and his 
collar button, and brought them with him to Varsity. He straightway enrolled in Natural 
Science and soon became one of the best known men in the year. Though never so close 
a student as to miss any of the fun and sport of college life, he yet takes a splendid stand 
at the examinations each year, and after graduating in arts and medicine, he will endeavor 
to make a bright name for himself as a medical practitioner. During his course, he has taken 
much interest in all the affairs of the college, and in his second year he was chosen 3rd 
vice-president of the Literary and Scientific Society. He has also been orator in his class and 
curator in the Natural Science Association. 

J. Ogle Carss. 

CHE entire Editorial Board of Torontonensis has being trying to find out what the "J." 
stands for at the beginning of Ogle Carss' name. But their efforts have been in vain, 
and mystery must continue to veil the deep significance of this ominous initial. Its owner 
was trained at the Smith's Falls High School, and when he came to the University, he 
enrolled in the department of Political Science. He has always been held in the background 
by his natural modesty and has not held office until this year. He is now faithfully 
performing the duties of 4th year councillor on the Executive of the Political Science Club. 

Nicholas Bdward fiincb- 

OWING to his first name being Nicholas, his friends call him " Young Nick " to 
distinguish him from his older namesake, to whom he bears a passing resemblance in 
some respects, but with whose family he is not immediately connected. Hinch comes from 
Camden East, a hamlet near Kingston, but in the holiday season when not attending college 
his home is on board one of the boats that cruise among the Thousand Islands. Before 
coming to the University to study Modern Languages in the Fall of '94, he taught school for 
several years and knocked about the world long enough to accumulate a precious store of 
hard common-sense, which is his most characteristic possession. In his freshman year his 
pompadour won for him great fame and at once brought him into prominence. As a 
sophomore he represented his year on the Literary Society Executive, and held the important 
office of athletic director of the class, besides looking after the interests of the III. Rugby Team 
in the capacity of manager. In his junior year he was on the Rugby Football Committee, 
and no doubt, his sensible advice did much to help the team on to the Ontario Championship. 
In his senior year, he was chosen treasurer of the class and was also unanimously elected 
treasurer of the 2nd Annual Dinner of University College — positions which enable him to show 
forth to the world his powers of persuasion and his stern integrity. His ability was again 
recognized by the Literary Society, which elected him " public reader " at the Annual Intercollege 
Debate with McGill, and chose him to represent the Society at the Queen's University 
Conversat. In his final year he was also the chief prop and stay of the II. Rugby Team, 
both in counsel and in play. He is undoubtedly one of the cleverest centre scrimmage men 
in the Dominion, and his aggressive work on the field was largely responsible for the fact 
that his team won the Intermediate Championship of Canada. Hinch has always proved himself 
to be a very clever student, a hard worker, an energetic committeeman, an honest soul and a 
kind friend. Of him are the poet's words true : 

" That nature might stand up 

And say to all the world, "This was a man!" 


Gardiner Lincoln Cflagar. 

RE of the coy moustache and the soft silvery tongue was born at Enterprise, which probably 
accounts for the fact that he is such an up-to-date, pushing, young man. Napanee Collegiate 
Institute claims the honor of preparing him for matriculation. Before coming to college he spent 
several years teaching, passing through all the grades from a low class in the public school to the 
high school. He also took a course in Pedagogy before coming to the University to see what he 
could do with Mathematics. He is most remarkable for his enthusiasm, which bubbles out all 
over him. He was on the Conversat Committee in his junior year, and recording secretary cf the 
Literary and Scientific Society in his senior year. After graduating, he will continue to teach the 
young idea how to sprout. 

Hndrew Harp jMontqomcry. 

CHE Muses early marked Montie " for their own, and prevailed upon the minister to give him 
a very tuneful baptismal appellation. After learning everything that could be learned in 
the peaceful town of Brantford, he came to the University of Toronto to study the Natural 
Sciences. He has been very successful in his studies and has besides won for himself many college 
friends by his kind and jovial disposition. Careful astrologers have discovered that as soon as 
** Montie " began to realize the possibilities of his name he took to music, where he has been 
very brilliant. He has been in the Banjo, Guitar and Mandolin Club ever since his freshman 
year and is now the president of the club. 

HUan lobn Goodall. 

CHROUGHOUT his course Goodall has devoted himself and his energies more to the taking'of 
notes in Political Science lectures than to student politics. He was prepared at the Gait 
Collegiate Institute. He is by nature very modest and retiring and has made a specialty of his 
college work ever since he came to the University. For these reasons, though an enthusiastic 
supporter of all college institutions, he has been content with the position of a private member and 
has never sought the bubble reputation in any direction. 




Klilliam Donald Love 


IS one of the most recent acquisitions from '97, and, most unfortunately, he no sooner began 
to feel at home in '98 than a serious illness lay hold upon him. In the Spring of '97, he 
decided that he would prefer to graduate with the Class of '98, so he played tennis while his 
classmates were writing on their exams and came back to College last fall, only to be stricken 
with bronchial pneumonia, which compelled him to give up his studies. Though not long 
a member of the Class of '98, he was well known to most of the students of the two higher 
years, and there is much genuine regret that such a popular man, such a promising athlete 
and such a clever student will not be able to graduate with the rest of the class next spring. 

^obn Ranson fiowitt. 

HWAY up on the Georgian Bay, a year ago last summer, John Ranson Howitt received 
from his fellow-campers the nick-name of " Rastus Hot-Foot, the man what eat seven 
eggs." There is a little explanatory tale that goes with that nick-name, — but that is another 
story. Ranson never yet hurt himself studying, but for several years he attended the schools 
of the Royal City. Since coming to college he has been a prominent man in the various 
clubs and also in the efforts of the year to secure the Mulock Cup. In his junior year he 
was treasurer of the Political Science Club and showed that he had an excellent faculty for 
gathering in fees from often unwilling members. He was also a councillor on the Executive 
of the Class Society. This year he holds the office of historical secretary of the Literary 
Society. He has played on the Year Rugby Football Team in all four years and has by no 
means been its Jonah. 

David Budd Cdhite. 

CHIS youth, technically called " Bud " by the irreverent, though of a quiet and retiring 
disposition, has managed to make himself well and favorably known in many departments 
of University life. He was prepared for college at the Welland High School and has shown 
the value of that training by being chosen in his 3rd year to play on the II. Rugby Football 
Team and also on the Association Football Team which were champions of the Intercollege 
League. He was a member of the II. Baseball Team in his 2nd and 3rd years. This year 
he holds the position of secretary for the Class Society. He is a conscientious and hard 
working student, and hopes, after graduating in Political Science, to make a brilliant name for 
himself in the legal profession. 

Robert GHUson Craw. 

CHE president of the Y. M. C. A. may be called "a son of the manse." He received his 
preparatory training in the Barrie Collegiate Institute. During his University career he has 
made a special study of Oriental Languages, and has spent most of his spare time in promoting 
the interests of the University College Y. M. C. A. The general student often makes the mistake 
of supposing Craw to be a Knox or a Wycliffe man, but his more intimate friends know him to 
be a loyal student of Old Varsity who loves his Alma Mater with a true and hearty devotion. 
His genial smile, Lis kind manner, his pleasing social qualities, together with his more sterling 
qualities, cannot fail to win for him recognition in the work of the ministry which he has chosen 
for his life profession. 

James Gemell )Mmr. 


HMONG that studious crowd in '98 Modern Languages is to be found James Gemell Muir. 
Although he is a Toronto boy, having been born and reared in the Queen City, he did not 
attend any of the Collegiate Institutes, but was prepared for the University at Upper Canada 
College. His home is in the suburbs and owing to the lengthy trip in and out each day, he has not 
had much time at his disposal. What time he has had has been devoted to the Glee Club, of 
which he has been an enthusiastic supporter. He has paid much attention to his college work 
and will probably graduate with high honors next May. 

fflilliam Graham Browne. 

PROBABLY the best looking man in the class is Graham Browne. He is not very generally 
known to even the members of his own year, to say nothing of the men of the lower 
years, as he has taken an active part in only a few of the student affairs, and has never attended 
many of the social functions connected with the college. He was born in Gait and prepared for 
the University in Toronto at the Jarvis St. Collegiate Institute. He has been on the staff of the 
Bank of Commerce for nine years, but has been accorded the privilege of five or six months 
leave every year until this year, 'when he has preferred to forego lectures altogether and merely 
come to the University for his examinations in Political Science. He acted as secretary of the 
Freshman Banquet Committee and this year is president of the Chess Club. 

QlUUam francis Carpenter. 

fROM the "Vineyards of Winona" comes W. F. Carpenter. He attended Grimsby High 
School in his young days, after which period he bound himself to the soil for a short time. 
During this interval he chose the ministry as the sphere for his life work. In order to accomplish 
this end he decided to graduate from Toronto University and Wycliffe College. He has lived 
during the four years of his arts course in Wycliffe Residence, where he is probably known better 
than among University men in general. In residence Frank is noted as a light-weight wrestler 
and as being an excellent fellow to take the lead in a pillow fight. He has made many intimate 
friends among University students and is considered to be a young man with a bright and 
promising future before him. 

losepb Douglas Richardson. 

6LDORADO in Hastings County is the birthplace of J. D. Richardson, but Wallaceburg 
in Kent County has been his home since early boyhood. He received his preparatory 
training at the Collegiate Institute in Chatham, after which he taught school for over two 
years. From the school desk he promoted himself to the pulpit and for three years he 
labored as a probationer of the Methodist Church. He then drifted to the classic halls of 
Victoria, and entered the course in Honor Classics. Mr. Richardson is known to some of 
his friends by the title of "Henry Irving" because of his predilection for "the histrionic art." 
Some of his fellow-students look back with pleasure to his private recitals from Shakespeare, but 
the demands of his favorite study in Classics have diminished somewhat his former reputation. 

Harr y Bverett Cflellwood. 

JI NOTHER student that comes of ministerial stock is H. E. "Wellwood. Victoria College 
* "*• nas to thank the Collingwood district for rearing him for her halls. He is the youngest 
member of his class at Victoria and being extremely modest, he has escaped the burdens as well 
as the honors of holding office in the University and College organizations. He has attempted 
alley and football, but prefers to take exercise by means of long walks. Outside of faithful 
attendance at lectures and a silent support of college societies he pursues the even tenor of 
his ways and next June will certainly secure with ease that on which he has had his eye 
for the last four years — a B. A. in the general course. 

John Gordon Inhster. 

eVER since he first discovered the Orkney Islands and ran bare-footed through the 
neighboring kailyards Sunday afternoons, "John Grampian " has been a man of mark. 
Most especially is this noticeable in his Gaelic accent, which entitles him to be in a class of 
his own. John, while still a youth, having heard of Hamilton in the society column of that 
widely-read and influential journal " The Orkney Hoot mon, Hoot " decided to come to Canada, 
and his anxious friends at home soon learnt that he had become installed in Knox College. 
The genial "Jock" is without a doubt one of the most popular men in the University. No 
man is more widely known and no man is more respected by the fair sex than this same 
bonny Scot. To name all the offices he has held with honor and credit to himself would 
require a Vol. II. of the TORONTONENSIS and this the Business Manager has sternly 
refused to publish. Here are a few of the most important : — In his freshman year he was 
Y. M. C. A. councillor and year debater, besides being on the class committee. In his sophomore 
year he was orator for the year and second vice-president of the " Lit." In his junior year he was 
the prime mover, originator and second vice-chairman of the University College Dinner, and the 
success of this function is due almost entirely to him. He has always taken a great interest 
in football and in his final year he was appointed manager of the senior Rugby Team and 
is one of the chief movers in the formation of a Canadian Inter-Collegiate Rugby Union, which 
is the thing nearest to his heart just now. When this league, the C. I. C. R. U., was organized 
in Kingston on Thanksgiving Day he was unanimously chosen President by the representatives 
of the other colleges. He was also honored this year by being chosen to represent the University 
College Literary and Scientific Society in its annual debate with McGill University, and a mass 
meeting of the students elected him first vice-president of the committee for the second Annual 
College Dinner. 





nTiUiatu emest g. Slagbt. 

CHE president of Victoria's Senior Class and its representative on the Board of Corontonensis 
is first and foremost a philosopher, secondly, an advocate of co-education, and thirdly, a man 
of very studious habits, at least from March to June of each year. He is a disciple of Kant, 
Tvith an eye for beauty- Along with other members of the " Bob " Committee he at one time 
fell out of favor with the women students of Victoria College, who objected to being " bobbed." 
His misdemeanor, however, has been overlooked and he is now finishing his course in a blaze of 
chivalric glory. Slaght is one of the men sent from the London Collegiate Institute to join the 
Class of '98. Since coming to college he has held many offices, has enjoyed a wide popularity 
and has maintained a high standing throughout his course, obtaining a scholarship in Victoria in 
his junior year. He intends entering the legal profession, and in future years will no doubt help 
to make famous the glorious class to which he belonged in his undergraduate days. 

lohii )McKay 6unn. 

eVER since coming to college John Gunn has cherished one proud ambition — to be 
Editor-in-Chief of Varsity. Not to every one does it fall to have their dearest student 
ambition realized, but such was his lot. The Editorial Board of the paper, on which he has 
served faithfully for two years, appointed him editor for the Spring term. He was born in 
Strathroy, Ontario, but received the rudiments of his education in London, where he lives at 
present. He does not know why he came to Varsity, unless it was that his head might be 
a shining light to the rest of the college and he did not wish to hide it under a bushel. 
When his light began to shine he was (elected to the Editorial Board of Varsity. The 
Modern Language Club recognized his ability and his services to the course by electing him 
secretary in his senior year, and he is ably filling the duties of his onerous position. The 
Y. M C. A., charmed by his virtuous demeanor and tried purity of life, elected him 
vice-president and he seldom fails to point out the straight and narrow way to erring freshmen. 
When he gets his " demit " next June he purposes entering Osgoode Hall and probably the 
mantle of Sir Oliver will one day be his. 


William Cbompson Hamilton 

IN the pretty little village of Motherwell, situated upon the River Thames, in the old stone 
manse which stands upon the hill, a little more than twenty years ago, there 'was born a 
noisy little Hamilton youngster that afterwards received the dignified name of William Thompson 
Hamilton. He grew up to be a very good little boy, and studied hard at the St. Mary's Collegiate 
Institute. While there he developed a strong physique, a well balanced mind and a remarkably 
good-natured disposition. At Varsity his amiability and practical sympathy for men soon made him 
a favorite. He soon grew to be a profound philosopher, an enthusiastic football player, and an old 
' standby ' in the Y. M. C. A. He intends to enter the noble profession of a medical missionary an- it 
is the earnest hope of his many friends that his future years may be as happy and as free from 
care as those that have passed away. 

F)ugb JMunroe. 

PROBABLY the levelest head in the University belongs to Hugh Munroe, the Philosopher 
of Ninety-eight. When his fellow students rise in the " Lit " and rail at one another, 
the calm, cool voice cf Hugh is heard reminding them that " this has gone far enough, 
gentlemen." When men write rabid articles in the columns of the Varsity, some remarks 
of eminent common-sense from his pen generally set things right again. This very able 
student was trained at the Woodstock Collegiate Institute. He has the reputation of one 
of the most painstaking and conscientious students at the College. But he shows that a man 
may at the same time care for both body and mind by taking a prominent place among 
those who playi Association Football. He has played on the Year Team in all the years and 
in his first, second and third was representative on the Association Football Club Executive. 
This year he is president of that organization and also secretary of the Intercollege League. 
The Literary and Scientific Society chose him to represent it in its Annual Intercollege Debate 
with McGill University, Montreal. 


Victor panics Gilpin, 

SUCH is his real name, though his classmates usually call him by the name of that 
far-famed ancestor of his, John Gilpin. And Victor James is just as good and honest a 
soul as was John, He is the son of a Methodist minister, and after a preparatory training in 
the Listowel High School he spent two years endeavoring 

To train the thought 

And teach the young idea how to shoot. 

For three years he followed the profession of a preacher and finally drifted to Victoria and 
joined the famous band of '98. He was at once taken in hand by the "Bob" and has since 
then been a most prominent man around the College. In later years he has become an 
authority on "Bob" ethics. He has always taken a keen interest in everything connected with 
college life, and has even been seen at Y.M.C.A. He has taken an honor course in Rugby, 
Alley, Tennis, Receptions, and " Shakespeare." Thus equipped he should have before him 
a most useful and honorable career. 

JVIartin ^ffard Shepherd, 

HNOTHER of the wise men from the East is M. W. Shepherd. He comes from near 
the Capital City and is one of the meekest looking men around Victoria College, 
When, however, he gets worked up upon his favorite theme — the rights and privileges of the 
ladies— he becomes eloquent and at times actually fierce. Mr. Shepherd is president this year 
of the Victoria Y. M. C. A. and by his enthusiasm has put fresh life into this organization. 
To look at " Shep " you would never take him for a sport, but this year he donned a 
sweater and played a star game on the '98 Association Team. Mr. Shepherd is a great 
admirer of the ladies, at a distance, but is gradually trying to overcome his innate shyness. 
He has held many offices in the College and also maintained a high standing in the General 
Course, as well as taking a large part of the work in Philosophy. His quiet manner has won 
him many friendships that will last long after the records of the Class of '98 have passed 
into history. 


7ohn Herbert Davidson. 

T^TJANY an innocent freshman has mistaken John Herbert Davidson for a professor of Mental 
I ^ m. and Moral Philosophy or some such abstruse subject. He might well be called the 
patriarch of his class. His lofty figure, his square shoulders, his drooping moustachios, his 
massive brow, and his calm, thoughtful voice, to say nothing of his philosopher's hat, make 
him remarkable. He is a mathematical fiend and his spare moments are given over to Chess 
or Association Football. He has never taken a lively interest in undergraduate affairs, and 
so has escaped the duties and delights, the troubles, the trials and the triumphs of an office-holder. 

Joseph Horace fault. 

CHOUGH Faull is not very generally known in student circles everyone who attends 
convocation exercises must know him by sight and by reputation, for there is seldom a 
presentation of prizes in which this clever science student does not figure. All the available prizes 
and medals and diplomas in his department he has captured. Like some of the great men of '98, 
his early history is indefinite ; he comes from nowhere in particular, his father being a member 
of the Methodist itinerancy. Before coming to college he was an instructor in Albert College. 
Once here he showed himself possessed of talents for careful student ■work in a much greater 
degree than any other member of his class. In the social life of Victoria College, he has taken a 
prominent part, and last year it was largely through his influence that ladies were admitted for 
the first time to the Senior Dinner. Carrying with him the careful and methodical habits which 
he has acquired at college, Faull will no doubt achieve a large degree of success in life. 

Charles Crick CurreUey. 

BY his easy gait, his full form and his fondness for Devonshire cream, Charles Trick CurreUey 
reminds one very much of a real " old English gentleman." He has made very many 
friends and acquaintances in Toronto since coming to college. As an Entomologist he has made 
some very important discoveries. Thus he has found that butterflies caught under a parasol are 
more beautiful and more interesting than those caught in a net. Being both a botanist and an 
artist he is very fond of flowers, the Daisy being his favorite. Now he purposes pursuing the 
study of Theology, and in this he will probably meet with his usual success. 




Samuel Cbomas Cucher. 

CHE proudest position that a Senior in Victoria College can occupy is the president's chair 
in the College Literary Society, and that position this year is held by Samuel Thomas 
Tucker. He received his preparatory education in Albert College, and in '93 joined the class 
of '97. The superior charms of '98, however, soon won his affections, and to join his new 
love he sacrificed a year of his course. He intends to enter the Methodist ministry, and in 
preparation for that work he is now an earnest student of Philosophy. He has held many 
different offices in his class and in the college societies. In his junior year he was secretary 
of the Victoria " Lit," and in his senior year he is president of the same. Although not a 
sport, yet Sam is passionately fond of alley as exercise, and spends much of his time on the 
alley board. His genial warmth of character has won for him many friends during his 
college career, and no doubt the same happy quality will be a powerful factor in his future 

William Y). Clarence LeecK 

HNOTHER student who comes from clerical stock is W. H. C. Leech. He is the son of a 
Methodist Minister and entering Victoria College enrolled in the general course. As a 
Sophomore he manifested a deep interest in the welfare of the Freshmen, especially about 
" Bob " time. In his junior year his classmates honored him by electing him president, and 
it was largely due to his efforts that the Senior Dinner of that year proved such a success. 
In his final year he was chosen vice-president of the Victoria Literary Society, a fact which 
amply testifies to his popularity. 

francis Hsbbury Carman. 

LIKE a good many of the Victoria men, F. A. Carman is the son of a Methodist 
Minister, his father being the Rev. Dr. Carman. He received his early education at 
Albert College. In J 895 he entered Victoria as a sophomore. He quickly won the esteem of 
the Class of '98, both in his own College and in other circles of the University. Carman 
has much of his father's ability and keenness of intellect. This is partly shown in the standing 
he has taken at the different examinations. He chose Political Science as his honor department 
and has maintained his standing with good honors. Mr. Carman will carry with him into 
the future the kindly wishes of his class, who are sure that his untiring perseverance and 
fidelity during his student days will not desert him in active life. 

David 6dward JYIcCracheii. 

ST. MARY'S is the home of this classical hero, and the good townsfolk are so fond of 
"Bun" that they sometimes cannot bear to let him go to college till after Christmas. 
Throughout his University course McCracken has been famous chiefly for his phenomenal 
appetite, for his studious habits and for his merry mood at the examination season. He is 
the only man in the department of Classics '98 who was ever known to come out from the 
Examination Hall and remark, without turning a hair, " Say, wasn't that paper a cinch ? " 
and that is his stereotyped judgment on every examination. At his matriculation he won 
a scholarship and throughout his course has obtained honors in Classics. 

lobn Howard Hlexander, 

CHE Mathematical Class of '98 is a very quiet, studious, steady aggregation, and in no 
member of it are these qualities so marked as in John Howard Alexander. His home 
is in Brampton, and he graduated from the High School there with very high honors. At 
the University his stand in his class has been a distinguished one despite the fact that ill-health 
has kept him from studying as hard as many of his classmates. In disposition he is extremely 
modest and not a little reticent, and he has never cared for the unsubstantial glories of an 
office-holder. Those who know him best declare that he is an altogether fine fellow, a 
splendid student and a good friend. 

Cbomas Hrthur Colclougb. 

ONE of the very latest acquisitions to '98 from '97 is Tommy Colclough. He belonged 
to the Classical Class of that much abused year, and it was not till he was on the 
eve of graduation that he decided that '98 was a class that was in every way more congenial 
to him. Accordingly in the Fall of '97 he returned to college and, in order that he might 
not spend too much time on his books or learn too much classic lore, he is acting as an 
assistant in the University Library. There his genial manner soon made him a favorite and 
no doubt before the year is over he will enjoy as wide a popularity in the Class of '98 as 
he did in '97. 


Oliver ftlowat Biggar. 

OF course his name is enough to make him famous at once, but in his junior year, Oliver 
Mowat Biggar won fame for himself by writing to 'Varsity an able, though somewhat 
radical article on ** Education vs. Learning." Since then he has been known as the strongest 
opponent in the student body to the theory and practice of co-education. He received his 
preparatory training for the University at Upper Canada College, and his brilliant stand at 
matriculation brought him at once into prominence in his first year. As a freshman he was on the 
Literary Society Executive, and as a sophomore he was secretary-treasurer of the Class Dinner, 
Since then he has taken a less active part in student affairs, though in his senior year he was 
chosen vice-president of the University College Dinner Committee, a member of the 'Va.rsity 
Editorial Board, and a member of the Editorial Board of Corontonensis. In his department of 
honor Political Science he has always taken a very high place, standing first or second each year. 

Charles Godfrey Tories* 

SOME day Charles Godfrey Jones will be a great lawyer. At present he is a modest, hard- 
worn student in the honor department of Political Science. He has never busied himself 
with college politics, nor ever felt the "lust for office" gnawing at his gentle heart. His favorite 
haunt around the University is the library, and not even the charms of Economic lectures can 
woo him from his place there. 

Hrthur Sverett Ingles Jackson. 

E^E of the sweet bass voice — the engaging smile — entered college when the Victoria Class of '98 was 
A * beginning its sophomore year. His genial manner made him at once a general favorite among 
the members of this illustrious year. He had already proven himself an able student at such 
educational centres as Beamsville, Caledonia and Hamilton. His exceptional talent as a vocalist 
gave him a ready welcome into the best musical circles, not only of the University but also 
of the city. In his senior year he conducted the Glee Club of Victoria University in an able 
manner, and also filled most creditably the exacting position of soloist in the Glee Club of 
Toronto University, in addition to singing in the Toronto Male Quartette. He has pursued the 
studies prescribed in the Political Science Department, and has written essays for Prof. Mavor, 
which will doubtless ere long place him in the front rank of the barristers of the Province in his 
chosen profession of Law. 

Joseph r Wri^ht Sifton. 

HMONG those who deserted University College for Victoria at the end of their freshman 
year is J. W. Sifton. He entered the University in 1894 with high honors in Mathematics, 
Science, History and English, and throughout his course has taken a good stand in the honor 
department of Mathematics. He was prepared for the University in the Strathroy Collegiate 
Institute. He has been prominent in Victoria's sports, especially hockey and football. He is 
also a leading man in the college societies, having been secretary of the Victoria Literary 
Society in his junior year. If ever he has a gold mine to give away, his fellow members 
of Class '98 hope that he won't forget his old classmates. 

Robert parties Dobson. 

BY the votes of his classmates, R. J. Dobson has been declared to be the most popular 
man in his year at Victoria. At the close of their junior year, the members of that 
class in Victoria College select one of their number for " Senior Stick " honors, the carrying 
of this historic stick being entrusted to the most popular man in the senior class. Dobson 
was born near Epsom, Ont., and at the Uxbridge High School he was as popular as he has 
since become at College. After gaining his second-class certificate he took up and effectually 
used his ferrule for a year. The Fall of '94 saw him a freshman at Victoria, where his 
popularity soon won for him the nick-name of "Jolly." Last year he conducted the 
department of Athletics in Acta Victoriana, the College paper. He has figured prominently 
in football, alley and hockey. Many offices have been ably filled by him, including the 
presidency of his class. 

Hrtbur Cbompson Cusbin$. 

H CLEAR, logical mind and the face of a philosopher belong to Arthur Thompson Cushing. 
He was born in the Village of Kenilworth, in the County of Wellington. While yet 
unlearned in the world's ways he migrated to the City of Hamilton. This young man then 
took the advice of Horace Greely, and " went west." After six years in Calgary, the capital 
of Alberta in the North- West Territories, he returned to join the Class of '98 in its second year. He has 
shown himself to be a persevering student of no mean abilities, and has held different offices 
in his class and Literary Society. He is possessed of many qualities which should win him 
success in whatever course of life he may choose to enter. 




Robert Stoddart. 

eXCEPT to a few men in the department of Classics, Robert Stoddart is probably not known. 
He joined the class this year, and he quickly received the nickname of "The Sphinx." 
As he is seldom seen to speak, the representative of Corontonensis was afraid to ask him for the 
particulars of his early life, so his biography is necessarily short. 

gobn Cbomas Hlfred Smitbson. 

RE of the four names and the two honor departments is recognized by his classmates as 
being a man in whom there are mingled many elements that should bring him success in 
life. Hard headed, strong willed and amply endowed by nature and training and education, this 
youth left his home in Peterboro' in the autumnal days of J 894 and came to these classic halls of 
learning. Here he at once showed himself to be a splendid student, and he has made his college 
career a very distinguished one by taking high honors in two full departments— Political Science 
and Modern Languages. He has never entered the field of sports except as an onlooker, and the 
game he most enjoys seeing is hockey. Those who know him well say he has a penchant for a good 
pipe and departmental stores, so that he is not without his recreations. He purposes entering upon 
a journalistic career and will probably develop into a politician and a Demosthenes, for he is 
deep and learned and never rests. 

Robert Justus Clarke. 

IN order to appreciate R. J. Clarke you must see him; for his round, smiling face, with its 
dimpled cheeks, give him fully as benign an air as Mr. Pickwick ever could have shown when 
without his glasses. Clarke learned so much in his freshman year that he had to stay out two 
years to digest his knowledge. He returned to find the Ninety-eighters sophomores, and cast in 
his lot with them. Natural Science was his honor department, and in his junior year he 
devoted himself to the Geological division. Clarke is a quiet student and a hard worker, and 
is much esteemed by his fellow-students. 

Barnes Cbompson SbotweU. 

IN the autumn of '94 with the falling leaves he came to college, peering into the 
Unknowable, grasping for the Infinite, thirsting for Lethe's Stream. No mute inglorious 
Milton has he been. For four long years earnestly has he striven in verse and in act to 
raise the rest of the undergraduate body to his ideal standard. He has been poet of the year 
and has sung her glories. He has tried to elevate the tone of the college journal. He has 
studied Modern Languages. He has borne himself with noble, lofty mien and never mingled 
in conflicts of common mortals. An halo of sanctimoniousness has wreathed his laureated 
brows. When one considers 'what might have been had his example been the guiding star 
of the class, an unutterable feeling of sadness inundates the soul and a longing comes for the sweet 
waters of Lethe, so that, like him, one might look up with calm brow and contemplate the 
majesty of the beautiful above. He has fought a good fight, he has well nigh finished his 
course ; henceforth he will go abroad into all the world yearning for Lethe and incidentally 
trying to twist this crooked world back into a state of primaeval simplicity and innocence. 
He is one of that goodly band of Strathroy Old Boys, who have done so much to the 
credit of themselves and the honor of their town, their school and their college. In his 
Freshman year he took a very prominent part in the student affairs and 'was chosen poet of 
his class and a member of the Editorial Board of The c Da.rsity. In his sophomore and junior 
years he remained a member of the Editorial Board, and in his senior he was the choice of his 
classmates for the position of secretary of the Class Society, but he resigned the latter position 
during the Michaelmas term. 


Ggerton franklin Armstrong. 

^^^OOT-STRONG " would have been a more appropriate name for "Army," but those 
I who had charge of the baptismal ceremonies did not then know the fame that the 
youngster was to win for himself on the football field. He was brought up at Goderich, 
and the stormy lake shore, the High School and the sports of the town have produced a 
strong type of man. Never has Victoria's Association Team had such a splendid back, and 
he is prominent in all the athletic movements of the College, having recently been elected 
Captain of the Victoria Hockey Team for the coming season. He is a favorite among the 
men, and is ready at any time for all the fun that may be going. He was originally a 
member of the Class of '97, but soon fell in love with the younger sister, '98. " Army " 
intends entering the ministry, and if he preaches as well as he plays hockey, Canada will 
hear of him before long. 

Gilbert JMachintosh jMurray. 

aNDOUBTEDLY one of the prettiest young gentlemen in the class, and indeed in the 
University, is G. M. Murray. Favored by nature in form and mind, and coming 
from Strathroy, a spot far-famed and beloved, he naturally stepped into the front ranks when 
he entered college life. The Class of '97 was first honored with his presence, but, when half 
way through his course, he wisely decided to join the younger throng and help guide its 
wayward youth. In his junior year he was elected to the Class Executive, so that by his 
wisdom he might aid the other members, and by his beauty give an added charm to the 
Executive's photograph. The Modern Language he graced as secretary in the same year, 
and now as Senior he adorns the president's chair. He has a charming French accent and 
in fact talks well in all modern languages. On account of his pleasant ways and attractive 
features he thinks he will have a large practice in medicine, which he intends to adopt for 
his life work. 


Alexander jMcGreflor. 

ONE of the many members of the class who are devoting their energies to Economics and 
Roman Law, Jurisprudence and Constitutional History, and the other subjects in the 
Science of Politics, is Alexander McGregor. He did not attend any of the many High Schools 
of the Province, having 'worked for some years before he came to the University. His fellow- 
students have not seen a great deal of him, as he has had outside work to do during his Uni- 
versity course also. His diligence has now secured for him the post of assistant clerk in 
Chambers, but he finds time to attend to some of his lectures and displays more interest in 
college affairs than many of those whose only thought is to get through the examinations in 

Robert Henry Rowland. 

CHE Rowland family should be well-known at Varsity by this time. Robert Henry came 
to college just two years after his big brother, the classical star of '96, and now there is a 
freshman Rowland, just the image of Bobbie. R. H., following in the footsteps of his elder 
brother, has managed to avoid the temptations and pitfalls which beset the young man during 
his college career. He has been a hard student and an enthusiastic member of the Glee Club, 
besides a member of the Y. M. C. A. Quartette. When you see him ask him confidentially how 
he went on the Glee Club tour in his sophomore year. 

jMatthew Donald jMcKicban. 

CHE good-natured face of Matthew Donald McKichan made him a favorite as soon as he 
entered college. He obtained his early education at the Hamilton Collegiate Institute, 'where 
he distinguished himself as a clever scholar by winning the Robertson Gold Medal in the English 
of the Senior Leaving Form, and also the third proficiency scholarship at matriculation. During 
his University course he has devoted himself to the study of Natural Science, in which 
department he has always ranked well. In addition to this, he has taken up part of the medical 
course, which he intends completing after graduating in arts. He has at all times been held in 
high esteem by his fellow-students, and has been entrusted with many positions of honor in the 
various societies, one of which was being made president of the Missionary Society of Victoria 
College in his senior year. 




Hlbert B. Steer. 

HMONG the Natural Science students who belong to Victoria's Senior Class is Albert B. 
Steer, who hails from Niagara Falls. Naturally of a refined and gentle disposition, 
he has not taken any special interest in the boisterous realm of sports. He is in his element 
while participating in the amusements of the parlor or drawing-room and is always at home 
in the presence of ladies. Sickness compelled him to abandon the honor course in his final 
year, but his name will not be missing from the list of Graduates of '98. Aesthetic is his 
hobby and no one personally accquainted with him could fail to notice this fact. He is 
respected by all students (especially the ladies) as a warm-hearted, true gentleman, and he 
will leave college with the best wishes of all who have known him. 

Herbert Louis partridge. 

CHREE years ago most of the Class of '98 were freshmen, but not so with Herbert Louis 
Partridge. It was in 1890 that he spent his freshman year in University College, and 
ill-health prevented him from resuming his studies till the fall of 1895, when the present 
Seniors were swaggering Sophomores. In the interval he had been preaching. On his return 
to College he enrolled at Victoria, where he has taken an active interest in the College 
societies. In his senior year he was chosen critic of the Victoria Literary Society. His health 
has never permitted him to take a very active part in athletics. He comes from the vicinity 
of Barrie. 

Robert parties )MiUer perhins. 

HMONG the Arts students resident in Wycliffe College is Perkins, he of the four initials. 
He was born and reared in the little village of Gorrie and attended the Harriston High 
School. In due time he found his way to the University. After completing his freshman year 
he entered the honor department of Philosophy and pursued this study during the remainder 
of his course. Although acknowledged by all to be a bright student he has yet found time 
to enter into the broader University life. On account of his splendid executive ability in all 
financial matters and on account of the fine figure his signature cuts at the bottom of receipts 
and cheques, he has been chosen treasurer of several college societies. In his junior year he 
held this post in his Class Society, the Philosophical Society and the Y. M. C. A. In his 
senior year he was chosen fourth year councillor of the Literary Society. He is possessed of 
many qualities which should make his career in the ministry a highly successful one. 

Archibald "formings JMatber. 

fOR some dark, unknown reason, Archie, early in his college course, was christened 
"Junction Bill," and the nickname seemed so appropriate in every way that it remained 
with him from his freshman to his senior days. Although he would never own up to it, Archie is 
just about as Scotch in temperament as one Canadian born could well be. He has all the sterling 
qualities of the race, and a few of the stubborn, matter-of-fact, temper-trying characteristics of 
your Scotchman. He has been blessed with a massive, if not a very magnificent, physique, 
though he always considered his anatomy too precious to risk on the athletic field. Once or 
twice he was induced to pull for his class in the tug-of-war, but the Rugby captains argued 
with him in vain. He was too fast, too strong, for the game. As he himself was wont 
to say, " If I ever got the ball I would run up and down the field, and the fellows would never 
be able to catch me, or if they did, a few of them would get hurt." He never sought office, 
and devoted his energies to studying honor Classics. Unfortunately, hard study injured his 
eyesight, and he was 'unable to return this year; but '99 will probably have the honor of 
numbering him among its graduates. 

Hndrew Cflentwortb Hunter. 

Hgood many of his classmates think Hunter is " a crank," but in that they do him an 
injustice. He, is however, undoubtedly possessed of an inordinate desire to see everything 
done decently and in order, and frequently finds himself compelled to protest against the 
metho 's adopted by those in power. He came to the University from Parkdale Collegi te 
Institute, where for some time he had been going about with a lantern seeking for knowledge. 
At lectures he always occupies a front seat, and is assiduous in the taking of notes. His 
stand in his honor department has been a very high one throughout his college course and 
in his junior year he topped the honor list. Although a close student he has found time to 
devote to general student life and has always taken an active interest in undergraduate politics. 
In his junior year he was a member of the Executive of the Literary and Scientific Society 
and acted as treasurer of the Political Science Club- He has taken some part, though not 
perhaps a very prominent part, in student athletics, having played on the class Rugby Team 
several times. In after life he should make a good Leader of the Opposition, as he can 
argue on every conceivable subject and is always " agin' the Government." 

Herbert 3°^ n Pawson, 

CHIS mathematical genius is not just sure where he was born, tut thinks it was in Liverpool 
or somewhere around there, in the year J 876. He either sailed or swam across the Atlantic, 
and arrived here or hereabouts some few years ago. It was early seen that he had in him 
the makings of a great mathematician, and he was always looked upon with suspicion by 
his neighbors because of the extraordinary way in which he could manipulate figures. At 
school he used to be able to add with his back to the board and do other equally funny 
things. He attended Owen Sound and afterwards the Harbord Street Collegiate Institute, 
graduating from the latter in J 894. Here he soon attracted attention by his faculty of carrying 
off mathematical prizes and scholarships. He was chosen historian of his class in his 
sophomore year, and in his senior year he is on the Executive of the Mathematical and 
Physical Society. 

]S"cil Duncan Reid. 

HNOTHER of the University students to receive their preparatory training at the Collingwood 
Collegiate Institute is Neil Duncan Reid. He was born at Gilchrist and even when 
he was in the First Part he showed himself to be possessed of very studious habits. In the 
University he never entered the arena of undergraduate politics or athletics, but devoted himself 
to his studies. He is at present a student in the General Course of the senior year, and is 
taking in addition the Hebrew lectures in the third year. 

CCUlUam 6abb Smeaton. 

CO comparatively few of his fellow students is William Gabb Smeaton known. He is a 
student in the General Course and as the majority of the other men in that department are 
not famous for the regularity with which they attend lectures he has not made a great many 
acquaintances in the lecture rooms. He is of too modest, too quiet a temperament to take a 
prominent part in student politics, and consequently the cares of the office-holder have never been 
his. He was born at Picton and received his preparatory education at the Picton High School. 
At present he is taking the studies in the General Course of the senior year and the Biology of 
the sophomore year. 


Hrcher JMowbray Burnbam. 

PORT Perry may have given men of note to the world before, but here is one outshines 
them all. Devoted to his course, Modern Languages, and incidentally to the ladies, with 
whom he has always been a favorite, leaving football, baseball, lacrosse, tennis, and even the 
gymnasium to run their own courses, with no yearning in his heart except to stand first in 
his honor department, who will be surprised to learn that he has attained the summit of 
college glory (in his eyes) by winning scholarships, medals and the enviable first position in 
his course. The concentration which he is able to bestow upon his work will place him in 
the forefront of the van when it marches forth next June to battle with the world. 

Cbomas David HUingbam. 

SOME twenty-five years ago near Stratford was born a baby boy who early gave promise 
of precocity. He rapidly absorded all the knowledge of Millbank and then went to 
Stratford, where he perfected himself. His dictatorial propensities led him to adopt a pedagogical 
life and he abandoned it only when he heard of Toronto University and that there was a 
possibility that he might learn something more there. That's why he came here, and the 
reason why he is not better known is that his modest demeanor keeps him in retirement and 
his assiduity to books keeps him out of office. He purposes continuing his career as a 
pedagogue when he has sounded the depths and scaled the heights of knowledge in and about 
Old Varsity. Somebody says he is already a pater familias. 

Samuel 6dward Bolton. 

CHE Temperance Banquet of the Class of '98 in its sophomore year will not soon be 
forgotten, and as long as it is renumbered the name of Samuel Edward Bolton, its 
iniugurator and chief promoter, should be borne in mind. The dinner was the first (and last) 
of its kind in the University, and it proved highly successful. That more of its kind were 
not held is due to the fact that class dinners were abolished the following year and their 
place taken by one large College dinner. Bolton was born and reared at Bolton and went 
to Upper Canada College to prepare for the University. He took a splendid stand at matriculation, 
winning a scholarship, and his stand in the honor department of Modern Languages has 
since been very creditable. In his sophomore year he was elected treasurer of his class.

Charles jMacdonald Carson- 

CHIS handsome young man came down from London to this happy abode of learning in 
the Fall of '94 to find himself already a famous man. Grave seniors, sporty juniors and 
condescending sophs, all were enquiring for " the kid who took all the scholarships." After 
this auspicious beginning it was no wonder Charlie got on well. He is now the astute man 
of the University. There is no greater schemer in the political line among the students than 
this sly youth. And besides being a bright and most successful student, and a leader of his 
fellows in undergraduate politics, he is essentially " a boy who is just one of the boys." There 
is never any fun for which Charlie is not ready. His Attic Chambers on St. Joseph Street are 
the rendezvous of a bright aggregation of University wits, of whom he is the leading light. In 
spite of his extremely modest demeanor his fame spread widely even in his freshman days, 
and now in his senior year those who do not know C. M. are only a to-be-pitied few. But 
a large number of those who are acquainted with Charlie have no idea of many of his 
sharp characteristics, sterling qualities that lie buried beneath a thick coating of modesty. 
His abilities, however, were recognized in large measure at once, and in each of his first 
three years he was elected to the Class Executive : In his freshman year as councillor, in his 
sophomore year as vice-president, and then in his junior year as president, his election to the 
last-mentioned proud position being by acclamation. He received his highest honor, however, 
in his senior year when he was unanimously elected first vice-president of the University 
College Literary and Scientific Society— probably the highest student office. It may be remarked 
by the way that his friendships have been confined entirely to the stern sex. Popular, clever, 
jovial, astute and pushing, endowed with keen foresight and great determination, Charlie is 
sure to be a great success. He is a man whom everybody hopes to keep on his calling list 
after graduation. 


Hrtbur 6tnerson )Mcfarlanc. 

PROMINENT by reason of his darkly gleaming eyes and coal black locks in the shivering 
line-up of freshmen, on that rainy October day in J 894, which is now historic as the 
date of the last great hustle in this University, was Arthur Emerson McFarlane, who had 
walked over from Parkdale to launch himself upon a voyage through the straits and channels 
in and about the shoals and rocks of the unknown sea of Varsity. After the hustle he 
settled down to the study of Modern Languages and the ravenous reading of Kipling, Thackeray, 
Tolstoi, Ibsen and a host of other writers in well-nigh all the fields of literature. His spare 
time he devoted to the writing of sundry articles, stories, essays and squibs for Varsity and other 
great papers and magazines whose names are more widely known to the outside world. 
During the last three years of his course, he has been constantly and intimately connected 'with 
the 'Editorial Board of "Varsity, the pages of which he has graced with his witty sparkles and 
peculiarly characteristic sketches. It is safe to say that no more willing worker has ever 
been on the Board of the College journal. His most prominent fault is that he occasionally 
lets his excitable temper run away with his natural good sense and often articles appear from his 
pen that are undoubtedly a little too hot-headed. In the Literary Society and Modern Language 
Club, McFarlane has always been an enthusiastic worker and in his honor department he has 
proved himself to be a bright and careful student. 


lobn Hrthur Jackson. 

CHS man of pleasant wit and genial smiles is the backbone of '98's General Course. When 
all others fail to attend lectures — lo, John is there. He comes early and stays late, and 
has always a pleasant word for everyone. He was born at Innisville, and received his 
preparatory training at the Carleton Place High School. (Those who can tell where both 
those places are will receive a handsome prize.) At the University he devoted himself to two 
broad educating courses, Political Science and the General Course. He never sought the honors 
and the disappointments of office, but he has ever taken a lively interest in student affairs. 
Doubtless he is reserving his energies for the great world outside. As a meal is to a Residence 
man so are John's two courses to him — dead easy. He is never really at ease save when he 
is working. 

lames JMattbew jMcKinley. 

^^TO man can be captain of a senior football team and at the same time a high honor man in 
I 1 Classics unless he possesses sterling qualities, and such a man is James Matthew McKinley. 
He is a splendid, hard-working, conscientious student, and is rewarded each year by a distinguished 
stand in the honor lists. He is, besides, a brilliant, hard-playing and enthusiastic Association 
football player, and is undoubtedly one of the best backs in the country. He was chosen to 
play on the picked team that met the champions of the Western Association last year. He 
is now the captain of Varsity's I. Association Team, and much of the success of that team is 
due to his untiring efforts in the committee room and at practices, and to his brilliant playing 
at the matches. 


George Charles fraser pring le 

HS far as Corontonensis knows there is just one man in the senior class, or indeed in 
the 'whole undergraduate body, who is a successful author, who can sit in his library 
and gaze on a whole shelf full of books all written by himself— and that man is George 
Charles Fraser Pringle. When the class lists come out you haven't to look far or long for 
Pringle's name, for each year you will find it with wonderful regularity at the top of the 
honor list in Philosophy. In his sophomore year he led the other philosophers of '98 and 
then amused himself during the summer vacation writing a Syllabus of Logic to sell to the 
sophs, next year. This is the book of which G. C. F. is the author, and while it had a large 
sale no doubt the proud author has a shelf full of extra copies still on his hands, which he will 
dispose of to students ambitious of the first place in second year Logic. Pringle has won the 
regard and esteem of every man in the University who has made his acquaintance, and he 
will long be remembered by them as one of the very finest men in the class. He has throughout 
his course been a prominent member of the Y. M. C. A. and in his senior year was chosen 
president of the Philosophical Society. His fellow-members in the University College Literary and 
Scientific Society also honored him in his senior year by choosing him one of the public debaters 
at the 154th Public Debate. 


Bamnett pinbey Bill. 

ONE of the best critics among the sweet girl undergraduates pronounced the judgment this 
fall, that Hamnett Pinhey Hill is the most popular man in the college, and so nice — 
and there are few who will dissent from that judgment. As his second name suggests Hammy 
was once a little boy, who used to " play hookey " from Sunday School and steal green apples. But 
now he is a grave and reverend senior and, as Mufti of Residence, has to conduct himself in a way 
becoming to one who is supposed to be the high ideal towards which all freshmen should 
strive. It would be possible for the Editor of Corontonensis to say a lot of horrid things 
about Hamnett Pinhey, but as it is cruel to disillusionize innocent "and trusting freshmen, he 
refrains. Hammy is one of the men of the day with a partiality for affinities, and he has 
several affinities and is still adding to his list. He is popular, pleasing and progressive. 
Many are the offices which he has held since coming to the University. He acted as curator 
of the Cricket Club while still a freshman. In his sophomore year he was elected secretary 
of Committees in the Literary Society. It was in his junior year that he first held office in 
the Class Society, of which he is now the president. At the beginning of his senior year he 
was not only elected to this important post, but was chosen Mufti of Residence, as he has 
been a Resident student since the first day of his freshman year. When the Literary Society 
received an invitation to send a representative to the School of Science Dinner, the choice of 
the Society fell on Hamnett Pinhey, on account of his wonderful appetite, and right well 
did he acquit himself at that Banquet. He is a student in the General Course and has 
managed to pluck considerable fruit off the tree of knowledge during his brief sojourn at this 


Donald Hnsley Ross. 

yyWHILE the editors are plugging away here, in the dark, unhealthy city, at his biography, 
^^^ Donald Ansley Ross is lightly bounding over the crags of the Selkirk Mountains in 
British Columbia, hunting for yellow gold and yellow chrysanthemums, or carrying a surveyor's 
chain, or something of that sort. He has not deserted the Class of '98, but he is so clever that 
he finds he can do as much studying in four months as your ordinary student can in seven. 
Accordingly, he seldom makes any break between his summer and his Christmas holidays, 
and returns to Varsity with the New Year. He is an old Upper Canada boy, who, like a 
good many others, came to Varsity because he didn't know what else to do. His handsome 
rosy-cheeked face, attached to his classic nose, soon made him a great favorite with the students 
of all sizes and both sexes. Among the girls his knowing smile and cute glances soon made 
him famous, and he received the nickname of " Adonis." Pleasing, popular, energetic, jovial, 
manly, full of fun and spirits, he is one of the best known men in the year. In his sophomore 
year he was on the Class Dinner Committee, and in his junior year he was treasurer of the 
Literary Society. In athletics he distinguished himself on the wing line of his class Rugby Team. 

Cbomas Laidlaw. 

ONE of those who appreciate their college course is Tommy Laidlaw. So much is he in 
love with Varsity life that he has spread the experience over as many years as possible. 
After taking one year he retires to his Sabine farm, there to brood over the pleasures of his 
college experience and to digest the store of knowledge he has collected. At present he is 
taking the honor course in Modern Languages of the graduating year, and his classmates all 
pronounce him to be a sterling student and "a mighty decent head." 


Frederick Richard Rutherford. 

yyTHEN Frederick Richard Rutherford came to college the football managers and captains 
^^^ and the other athletic enthusiasts looked him over as he strode across the campus or 
through the corridors, and remarked to one another in knowing tones, "A likely man that 
freshman !" His broad shoulders, his stout legs and his chunky frame seemed as though he were 
sent to the University just to play on Varsity's wing or half-back line. But his devotion to his books 
and ill-health kept him from entering upon an athletic career with all his might. His forte on the 
campus throughout his course has been Association Football, and only once or twice has he donned a 
Rugby Football suit. He has played on the Varsity Association Football Team, and on all the 
class teams. He was a member of the Knox Team which championed the Intercollege League 
in 1896, and also on the picked team which played against the Western Association Champions 
last year. As a senior he acted as vice-president of the Athletic Association. His honor 
department is Political Science, and in his studies he has always taken a distinguished stand. 

George Herbert Balls. 

T-^E was born at Petrolia and received his preliminary education at Petrolia High School. 
M. / He entered the University as an honor student in Mathematics and has continued to keep 
up his standing throughout his course. He was secretary of his class in his sophomore year, 
and secretary of the Mathematical and Physical Society in his junior year. Balls is a hard 
student and a scholar of ability. He also takes an interest in athletics, being a member of 
Varsity II., Rugby Intermediate Champions of all Canada. In disposition he is quiet, but 
under his left vest pocket he carries a small organ which occasionally gives him considerable 
trouble, but trouble of a nature which Balls seems to enjoy. Coming from Petrolia one would 
expect Balls to have a smooth oily disposition, but this is not the case. He is a man who has 
the strength of his convictions and works hard in the interests of whatever cause he champions. 
His honor department at the University is Mathematics and he is recognized as a good 
example of an intelligent and conscientious student. 


Benson Hmbrose Coboc. 

MM I HEN the members of the present senior class came to Varsity in the Fall of '94 as 
^^^ freshmen, everyone was anxious to see the wonderful B. A. Cohoe. The examination 
lists had declared that, in the eyes of the examiners, he knew more than any other boy in 
Ontario. At matriculation he won the Prince of Wales' Scholarship for General Proficiency, 
besides taking a very high stand in several separate departments. He joined the Victoria 
Class of '98, and was at once elected president and the class' representative for everything. As 
a sophomore he managed the " Bob " and the " Bob " managed the college. The professors, 
too, well-nigh worshipped him. He chose Natural Science as his special honor department, 
and he has shown himself to be a careful and broad-minded student. In athletics he devoted 
himself especially to tennis. To enumerate the offices he has held would take too much time 
and space, suffice it to say that in this his senior year he is president of the Mandolin Club 
and editor-in-chief of Acta Victorians, the Victoria College journal. In sccial circles he is a 
great and general favorite with men and women alike, and many are his affairs de coeur. 
After graduating in Arts he will study medicine, and there is hardly a doubt but that his 
success in that noble profession will be great. 


Burriss 6ahan. 

fROM London the Less with his grip and his grin he came in the autumn of '94 eager 
to learn what he could of a dozen or more subjects, especially Classics, and incidentally 
to get what enjoyment there was to be had in college life. He grinned while passing through 
that celebrated hustle, and amid all the changing days of his undergraduate career, at receptions and at 
lectures, in the library, on the campus and even during examinations, that broad, expansive, 
Irish grin has never left him. He probably acquired it in the Forest City, listening to the 
funny stories of his friend Charlie Carson. It is said that while still young in years, Gahan 
gave promise of considerable literary ability, being able at the age of seven to write a thesis 
on "The Art of Moulding Public Opinion." As Corontoiiensis goes to press Burrie is 
still moulding. At the first class meeting in his freshman year he was chosen critic of the class 
because he talked Bourinot and grinned. In his isophomore year he tried to play chess and 
acted as treasurer of the Chess Club in addition to attending lectures, social functions 
and church. As a junior he took such a great interest in Varsity, the college 
journal, that when the time came to elect the Editor-in-Chief for '97-'98 the unanimous choice 
fell on him. His last year has been a particularly happy and brilliant one. With that same 
characteristic grin, only broadened with the years, he accepted the honors that came his way. 
He held simultaneously the offices of editor-in-chief of Varsity, historian of the Senior Class, 
president of the Classical Association and editor of Corontotiensis. He careered along happy, 
bold and confident. Although a good deal of his time has been spent grubbing in the treasure houses 
of Greek and Roman antiquity, Gahan has nevertheless a modern philosophy of life and very 
modern tastes. Known favorably by all he will step forth (grinning) into the busy, coin-chas.'ng 
work-a-day world, fondly regretting the days that are gone, but strongly self-reliant, ready to 
jostle and be jostled along. His frank and open countenance (very open) will no doubt win 
him friends whether he enters upon a journalistic, a business or an academic career. In fact 
he is sure to succeed in life, if he does not fail.

CHE first Curator of the Women's Fencing Club, Business adviser to Sesame 
last year, and Councillor of the fourth year, is one of the most sparkling

she is a jewel. 


CHE flash of an original thought across a page of stereotyped sayings is not 
half so heartening as the touch of an artistic personality among abstract

lives before you. It is this gift that makes her work as a speaker and debater so 
effective. The Women's Literary Society of Victoria College count her one of 
its foremost members, and believe that it has now an orator by whom history 
is to be made. In the Y. W. C. A., Miss Fife is very active. She has also 
held office in the Class Society. But the ostensible purpose for which students 
come to college has not been neglected [by her, for from her first year she has 
taken a high stand in the General Proficiency list. 



CMS young Napanee lady is none of your paste diamonds, but a genuine 
stone of the first quality. Her most noticeable features are her sunny hair 
and her love for Browning. Though her inclinations are literary rather than 
" sporty," yet in her sophomore year she developed such an enthusiasm for fenc- 
ing that one never-to-be-forgotten day she ran her foil down the instructor's 
throat. She does not fence now. 


tN 1894 this diamond dropped like a falling star from Parkdale Collegiate 
Institute into Toronto University. In her first year she was representative 
in the Modern Language Club, for which society she has worked energetically. 
Moreover she has been a faithful attendant of the Women's Literary Society, 
the secretaryship of which she held efficiently in her third year. Her originality 
is very marked, she having, like all diamonds, her sharp points. 


HMONG the Diamonds few have ever taken a deeper interest than Miss 
Lamont in all Class and College Associations, especially in the Women's 
Literary Society, of which in her second year she was appointed Curator. Owing, 
however, to unforeseen circumstances, she was obliged to resign this office. She 
was also a member of the Lunch Room Committee, in which position she ably 
fulfilled her duties. Her amiability and many other social virtues have won for 
Miss Lamont a snug little ingle-nook in the affections of Class of '98. 




UflS bright diamond from Victoria's crown is clever, sociable and conscientious. 
She has delved deep in her scientific researches. Even to share her 
company in the physicial laboratory was an inspiration. Many long and 
tedious minutes which were spent waiting for magnets to cease oscillating, 
she whiled away with some charming tale. Her greatest fault was forgetfulness 
of nine o'clock lectures and examination time tables, once having come in the 
afternoon to an examination which had taken place in the morning. In her 
senior year her classmates at Victoria expressed their appreciation by electing 
her to the office of first vice-president. 


HMONG the '98 students who hail from London, the City in the Woods, is 
Miss Kathleen Mullins. She received her early education at the Loretto 
Academy, Stratford, and later at Hamilton. Leaving that institution, she entered 
the London Collegiate Institute, matriculating into Toronto University in J 894. 
Here she has pursued the Modern Language course with that ease and success 
which has distinguished so many of the Forest City's clever students. One of 
the prime movers of the German Club of '97, she contributed greatly to place 
this organization on a firm footing, while her position on the editorial staff of 
Sesame is a tribute to the esteem in which her literary abilities are held by 
her fellow-students. 



CHIS diamond comes from over the border, her home being now in New 
York. She began her University course in '94, while resident in Toronto. 
In '96 her family removed to their present home and she was offered the 
opportunity of completing her studies at Barnard College, where she would be 
able to remain with her own people. Such, however, was her loyalty to her 
Alma Mater that she chose rather to be separated for two winters from her 
relations and finish her course at Toronto, where, needless to say, her return 
is most warmly welcomed by her many Canadian friends. She is the right 
sort of neighbor. 


CHIS Koh-i-noor diamond is one of the pioneer girls of the Political Science 
Course. Whether she is to continue her studies at Osgoode is not known, 
but this much is known that oft-times she has been seen poring over the statistics 
in the library to see whether brown-eyed or blue-eyed lawyers are the most 
successful. What does this mean? Miss Lynde has always taken a prominent 
part in College societies. Last year she was vice-president of the Political 
Science Club ; and so great was her attention at the meetings, that one of 
the public lecturers presented her afterwards with a complimentary copy of his 
book recently published ; and one's admiration for Miss Lynde's qualities and 
one's confidence in her high ideal of duty are too great to allow one to think 
that she knew anything about the book at the time of the meeting. She is now 
historian of the year, is on the Editorial Board of Varsity, and on the 
Corontonciisis Board. 



HFTER much wandering in divers paths of learning Miss Montgomery at 
last entered upon the straight and narrow way which leadeth to the 
entrance to Toronto University. The energizing air of Islington, Ont., had first put 
into her the breath of life, the power to do or die. Then four years at Mrs. 
Neville's Seminary for Young Ladies, a few months at the Presbyterian 
College, a year or so at the Model School, and last and best two years at 
Harbord Collegiate, provided the necessary intellectual gymnastics, and Miss 
Montgomery entered the University of Toronto with the glorious Class of '98. 
A good student, with a genius for cordial sociability, prominent in many an 
election contest and enthusiastic in many of the varied interests of a large 
University, she has stood by '98 right loyally throughout the whole four years. 
Well known and well liked, from the night 'when as a blushing freshette she 
sang with other blushing ones in the choruses of the memorable Union Glee Club 
concert up to this last year of her undergraduate life at Toronto University, she 
has won golden opinions from all who knew her, and will leave many friends 
behind her. 



aNADORNED by flattery and encomium are these few facts about Miss 
Macdougall's college career, for she is sufficiently well known to make 
any description of herself unnecessary. Often have her classmates proposed her 
for office, but she has nearly always refused, preferring the ranks of the 
" profanum vulgus." The persuasive powers of her friends, however, occasionally 
overcome her bashfulness and in her junior year she was elected Class Poet — a 
sort of ministry without portfolio, however, for never a poem has she written. 
In her junior year she was also entrusted with the supreme control of the exchequer 
of the Women's Fencing Club, and also acted as its secretary. In the same 
year she was chosen third year councillor on the Executive of the Women's 
Literary Society. Of her services to the " Lit " volumes might be written — how 
she advised and helped in problems of serious difficulty and how she entertained 
the members with her extempore discussions, how she described the opening 
proceedings of the Dominion Parliament, and how charming was her rendering 
of the role of Maggie Tulliver at the " George Eliot " open meeting of the Society, 
and how clever and appreciative was her portrayal of " Portia." Besides these 
societies, the Y. W. C. A. and other college organizations have many private 
proofs of Miss Macdougall's sympathetic co-operation. In her studies she 
has taken a distinguished stand, being the second girl to take honors in the 
department of Philosophy, and also being one of the " Political Science Individuals" 
fortunate enough to win a place on the honor lists. 


KNOWN best, probably, as the accomplished pianist of the Ladies' Glee Club, 
Miss Rosenstadt, of Hamilton, is undoubtedly a diamond of many facets. 
She is studying Modern Languages at the University, and that with such dazzling 
results that Professor Keys never thinks of remembering a German word when 
she is by. She also studies music under Mr. Edward Fisher at the Toronto 
Conservatory. As an outcome of this, together with her unfailing obligingness, 
she is in constant demand by the undergraduates for all social gatherings and 
musical entertainments, where she scintillates melodiously among the group of 
other stars. For the past two years she has filled the office of pianist to the 
Glee Club, and her gift is in frequent demand on Saturday evenings at the 
Women's "Lit-" She also holds the distinguished post of fourth year councillor 
in that august body. 


HT receptions Miss Slater, of Niagara Falls, is a decided favorite. She has 
confined her membership in the Associations of University College to the 
Glee Club, on behalf of which she gave her voice in her third year. Although 
Niagara Falls is now the home of Miss Slater, she lived formerly in Gait. In 
spite of the fact that she never took a very prominent part in the affairs of her 
fellow-students, she is quite well known, and with all who know her she is 
a favorite. It would be presumptuous to praise Miss Slater's many good qualities 
and powers, for every University student has been aware ever since he read 
the Arabian Nights that diamonds shine by their own light.

CHERE is certainly one young lady in the senior class of Victoria College 
■who does not allow her thirst for knowledge to run away with her 
good sense, and that is Miss Mary Catharine Cooper. She has been regarded 
by her classmates as a model of sweet dignity and quiet grace, and her 
deliberate yet kindly way of speaking has given her the prerogatives of a 
queen over the somewhat reckless theological students. Miss Cooper has held 
the offices of vice-president of the Women's Literary, secretary -treasurer of the 
Y.W.C.A., vice-president of the Missionary Society, and councillor, historian and 
judge of the Victoria Class of '98. 


fOR two years previous to her coming to Toronto, Miss Deacon pursued her 
University course at Whitby Ladies' College, ■whence she graduated in 
1896, winning Senator Cox's gold medal in the M.L.A. course. Since then she 
has been studying hard at Victoria College. Miss Deacon is specially fond of 
literary subjects, and bids fair to bring distinction upon the Class of '98. It 
cannot but be that the earnestness and strength of her character, which are deeply 
felt by those whoTknow . her best, ■will be helpful to all with whom she may be 



CHIS energetic member of the Y. W. C. A. and Glee Club, also promoter 
of a would-be Women's Mandolin and Guitar Club, was born and brought 
up at Lindsay, Ont., with such success that she matriculated thence, from the 
local Collegiate Institute, with honors in J 894. Since then she has pursued a 
vigorous General Course at University College, ■which, however, proved such 
child's play to her that during the last two years, she has added honor 
work in English and History. It is at once a pleasure and an inspiration to 
see the confident ease with which Miss Flavelle handles a copy of the 
Revised Statutes, half as long as herself, in the History Seminary. May she 
throughout life continue to make her history worthy of such an honorable 


CHROUGHOUT her college course Miss Gilfillan has been the bosom 
friend of Miss Rumball. She matriculated into Toronto University from 
Bowman ville, her native town, in 1894, taking honors in Moderns and History. 
Her unassuming manner has won her many friends in University College, 
where she has been interested in all branches of work. Her chief field of 
action has been in the Y. W. C. A., of which she has been an energetic 
supporter throughout her course. For three successive years she has been a 
representative on the Missionary Committee, in the cause of which she has 
worked enthusiastically, and of which she has this year been appointed convener. 
Few are the receptions which she has not attended, and her pleasant and 
sociable manner have made her a favorite with all who know „ her. 



HFTER matriculating from the Elora High School, Miss Graham became a 
member of the Class of '98 at Victoria College. She has, throughout her 
course, obtained an honorable standing in her chosen department of Modern 
Languages. Miss Graham has held at different times important offices in her 
class, and has also been an active member of the various other societies of 
her College. Her brightness and ready sympathy have made her a favorite 
not only with the members of her own class, but with all with whom she 
has been associated. Not alone distinguished as a student, but also for her 
interest in all that concerns her class and Alma Mater, she is well fitted to 
uphold the reputation of the woman graduate. 


a PON matriculating from St. Catharines Collegiate, Miss Hawkins entered 
Victoria College with the Class of '98. She has shown her ability as a 
student, especially in her department of Modern Languages, where at each 
examination she has held the first place among the students of her College, and 
has also maintained a high standing in the University of Toronto class-lists. 
Her sunny disposition and marked personality have won for her many friends, 
and she has creditably^filled various offices inJhe College societies. 



'%7JISS Moore, now a resident of Blenheim, is a member of the Women's 
I ™ A Glee Club and of the Class Society of '98. But it is especially in 
connection -with the erudite phase of University life that one looks for Miss 
Moore to distinguish herself, the name of her family having already attained 
a distinguished place on the University rolls. 


IF she was ever inclined to sadness this Toronto girl must now be 
considered as incorrigibly Glee— ful, having been a member of that merry 
club throughout the whole four years of her University life. In her first year 
she was a member of the Y. W. C. A. Later the Tennis Club was substituted 
for this, but, in her fourth year, there appears a tendency to backsliding, tennis 
having given place on her engagement list to Dr. Tracy's Bible Class. Miss 
Muirhead has many warm friends at Varsity, but for special further particulars 
concerning her, application should be made to Miss Crane. 


BY her sister students this Oshawa girl is much beloved. She is characterized 
pre-eminently by constancy. She has been for three years a faithful 
adherent of the Y. W. C. A., for three years a steadfast member of the Glee 
Club, and from her entrance into the College has never missed a meeting of the 
Class Society. '98 has but one regret in connection with her, viz., that she 
will be unaccompanied by her sister 'when receiving her hood in June. 



1\7[ISS GRACE WILSON, of Whitevale, is one of '97's good bequests to '98. 

I A Quiet and reticent, her devotion to the Modern Language Course reminds 
one of the learned distinction of the late Field Marshal Von Moltke, who was 
reputed silent in nine languages. Although she has never taken a very prominent 
or active part in the affairs of the women students, she has made not a few 
friends and they all pronounce her to be a splendid student and an amiable 


IF there is anyone in this collection of cards that is deserving of the name 
and the dignity of the Queen of Spades it is Miss M. L. Menhennick 
of Ingersoll. She is a member of the Modern Language Club, of the Women's 
"Lit," and of the Y. W. C. A. She was councillor of W. L. S. in her first 
year, some-time class historian, and second vice-president of M. L. C. for '97-98. 
One who reflects such credit on her suit that every spade may henceforth be 
proud to be called a spade. She will turn you up a Teutonic root for the 
asking, to the wonder of her classmates and the admiration of Professor Keys 
himself. She also delves amidst the flowers of rhetoric. She entered college 
with a scholarship in Modern?, and has headed her department for two years. 
Her wealth of learning is equalled only by her generosity. There is no one 
whose notes are more borrowed. 



HMONG the bright bevy of Varsity students whose homes are in Strathroy, 
is Miss Annie M. Nicholson, ■who received her preparatory training at 
the Collegiate Institute of that town. Since coming to Toronto she has 
endeared herself to many by her quiet and unassuming manner. She has taken 
a very active part in the Y. W. C. A. of University College, and was one of 
the Membership Committee in her second year. In her third year she was a 
member of the Lunch Room Committee, and at present she is convener of the 


CHE elements of " Sweetness and Light," the products of religious development 
in a character, have more attractive force than any other thing, even to 
those to whom the creeds and dogmas that may pertain to that religion are 
abhorrent. Mary C. Rowell has won the hearts of all her fellow-students 
through the silent diffusion of this force. Toleration and a steadfast adherence 
to present duty make her an inspiration to those around her. During parts 
of her third and fourth years Miss Rowell was president of the Y. ~W. C. A. 
of Victoria College. The Faculty of Modern Languages considers her one of 
the best students in the College. She has taken a good stand in her course, 
but owing to a highly nervous temperament, has never done herself full justice 
at examinations.

— Merry Wives of Windsor, IV: 5. 


fOR four years Miss Kerr has been an officer of Victoria Women's Literary 
and Class societies, and is now associate editor of Acta ' for '98. 
Ontario's world-famed educational system boasts her as a gilt-edged example of 
its efficacy. From public school to collegiate institute, from collegiate institute 
to the University, lay the undeviating orthodoxy of her course. In the University 
she has been noted for her breadth of interest, for she has known the social fully 
as well as the work-a-day aspect of college life; and besides, has been prominent 
in many of the societies and literary enterprises of the College at which she is 
registered, where, by her abilities as a musician and her literary gifts, she has 
proved a most important factor. In fact, with J 898, the University of Toronto 
gives to the world an " edition de luxe," entitled Ida Margaret Kerr, B. A. — a 
substantial three-volume work, no fiction. The work is copiously annotated, 
and has already received many flattering press notices. 




CWO regrets — she is not Canadian born, and is not registered at Varsity, 
having bestowed her genial presence and hearty disposition on Victoria 
College. She matriculated from Harbcrd Collegiate Institute with first-class 
honors, and excelled her former records by carrying off the Governor-General's 
silver medal for general proficiency in her second year, and also winning English 
prizes in her own college. But why trouble to tell of offices and prizes ? One's 
interest in Miss Skinner — no less at Varsity than at Victoria — is in her fresh, 
wholesome, winning personality. "She's a heart of gold." 


CHERE have been whisperings of a little affaire de coeur of Miss Ashwell's, 
and that is why she is numbered among the Hearts. Of course, it may 
all be a prank of mischievous Dame Rumor. After matriculating with 
first-class honors from the Strathroy Collegiate Institute, it is not surprising that 
Miss Ashwell has always been among the first in the Modern Language honor 
lists of Toronto University. Her popularity and her persuasive powers 
gained her the position of assistant treasurer, in her junior year, in the Modern 
Language Club. Besides a superfluity of grey matter, Miss Ashwell possesses 
many personal attractions and social qualities. The Y. W. C. A. has found in 
her enthusiasm great aid ; and she was its vice-president in her junior year. 
Miss Ashwell's name shines among the lights on the eighth page of that popular 
journal, Varsity — she being an energetic member of its Business Board. 



CIERE was no hesitation as to the class in which Miss Clara Crane of 
Toronto should be placed, for, although she would be a worthy member 
of the Clubs, she is first and foremost a Heart. She prepared for the University 
at Moulton College and Harbord Collegiate Institute. During her course 
Miss Crane has lent the light of her presence to the Women's Literary Society 
and the Glee and Tennis clubs. During her first year, the Y. W. C. A. found 
in her one of its supporters, though in her sophomore and junior years her name 
is lacking. In her senior year, however, she has found her way back, and is now 
a member of Dr. Tracy's Bible Class. In this list, Miss Crane may claim a 
chief place, for her kindly disposition and gentle nature have won her an 
assured place in the hearts of her classmates — and others. 


T\7f ISS Hurlburt's standing in the class lists of '98 is not to be despised, but 
I'A her most brilliant achievement was her success in the second year, when 
coming down for a visit she was persuaded to try the examination, although 
only about a month remained, and she showed her ability by taking a good 
standing. She has been one of the most willing workers in the Y. W. C. A., 
holding at present the positions of convener of the Membership Committee and 
pianist. She is one of the favorites in Frau Hostetter's German Club. 



CHE wide-spread fame of the Class of '98 drew Miss Burbank down from 
Brantford in the Fall of '95 to join its illustrious ranks. By her brightness 
she has won a place among the social lights of '98. Miss Burbank has a natural 
ability for journalistic work that will doubtless shine forth with a brilliancy equal 
to that of the delightful southern clime which she will probably have the privilege 
of enjoying in the near future. 


IT was in the Forest High School that this well-known member of the 
class was prepared for the University. In her sophomore year she was 
elected councillor of the class and filled her position in an eminently successful 
way. She is now representative to the Women's Residence Association, and 
Frau Hostetter's German Club finds in her one of its most enthusiastic members. 
Her career has not been purely literary, although her name is not sought in 
vain in the general proficiency and various honor lists, nor has it been purely 
serious, though she has always been an active member of the Y.W.C.A. and 
a brilliant student of Apologetics, but she has, ever since her first year, been 
an important factor in the social life of the class. She is a splendid conversa- 
tionalist, not only on society subjects, but also on the passing topics of the day, 
and it is even rumored that she delights in discussing classical or philosophical 



SHE is a heart of hearts, is Miss Deroche. She hails from the pretty little 
town of Napanee. She is a girl of great powers of discernment, for no 
sooner did '98 make its irresistible fascination felt in University life, than she 
forsook the cool shades of '97 to bask in the sunlight of '98. Her charm and 
brightness and many attractions have won her warm friends and the offices of 
councillor of the Classical Association, and in her senior year she was chosen 
historian ot the '98 Class Society. Her conversational powers are brilliant. 
Her disposition is both philosophic and romantic, as she is equally happy in 
expounding Plato or going into raptures over the latest popular actor. 


HMONG those who matriculated in 1894 from the Strathroy Collegiate 
Institute was Miss Alice Healy. At that famous school her interest in 
all student societies had made her a great favorite. It was in her junior year 
at University College that the excellencies of Miss Healy's character were 
first generally recognized by her classmates, who then conferred on her the important 
office of councillor in the Class Society, a position for which her affable 
manners and remarkable wisdom made her eminently suited. Altogether Miss 
Healy is one of '98's most popular girls, her bright and vivacious temperament 
having won for her a lasting place in the affections of all who know her. 



■^^TO doubt the Clubs have some claim on Miss Day, for she is one of the 
I ^ bright and shining rays of '98, and has twice been councillor of her class. 
She is of a philosophic turn of mind, and has been known to extract not only 
joy from class receptions, but also jokes from theologs. Future generations 
will read with a moist eye of the martyr who religiously attended every 
social function in connection with her Alma Mater, and could heroically reply 
to the four hundred and ninety-ninth edition of the question, "What course are 
you taking?" Anyone who knows Miss Day's pleasing and sympathetic 
personality can readily understand how she comes to be numbered among 
the Hearts. 


lV7f ISS DAWSON left the Forest City four years ago to plunge into the 
I ^ jungle of honor Mathematics. She and Miss Harvey (see Clubs) have 
been steadfast and inseparable companions, and, hand-in-hand, are emerging 
from the horrid regions of figures and coming out into the light of things 
together. Strange to say (being mathematical) Miss Dawson is a musician 
and a lover of poesy. Neither have her social instincts been obliterated by 
the dry-as-dust study of angles, for she has been one of the leading young 
ladies in the many means of social grace at Victoria College. Miss Dawson 
has been councillor, treasurer, secretary and twice vice-president of her class. 



IN the famous receptions of the Class of '98, Miss Johnston used to be one 
of the greatest favorites, but for some time the social functions of the 
class have not been honored by her pleasing presence. She was not long at 
the University before her abilities became generally recognized. In her junior 
year she was the choice of her fellow-students for the first vice-presidency of 
the Class Society, and the duties of that important office she performed to the 
perfect satisfaction and delight of all. Other offices have been held by 
Miss Johnston, the chief of them probably being the presidency of the Ladies' 
Tennis Club. Throughout her whole course she has shown a gracious sweetness 
which has won her deep and lasting devotion. 


XT has been a bone of contention with the editors as to which list this very 
ornamental member of the class should be enrolled under. Finally, Hearts 
have her. She has filled in her own peculiarly charming way the offices of 
class historian in her junior year, treasurer of Y. W. C. A., and representative 
to the Women's Residence Association, besides taking an active part in the 
Women's Literary Society, where she has delighted many by her sweet voice 
and dramatic talents. Many are the friends she has won, and no member of 
the class has been more popular or more sought after at Class Receptions.

—I. Henry VI. 1-3. 



TiTriSS GRACE HUNTER is acknowledged Queen of Clubs by her election 
I * M. to the position of president of the "Women's Literary Society. Ready wit, 
bright repartee, and originality distinctively characterize Her Majesty. The 
energetic fulfilment of her duties as member of the Class Committee in her 
first year won for her the confidence of her fellows, who elected her vice-president 
of the Women's Tennis Club for '96-'97 and then to her present high 
position. Remembering Queen Hunter's invincible hilarity before she ascended 
her throne a person's loyal heart is rent with sorrow when one witnesses her 
apoplectic suppression of all expression of plebeian emotion at the uncourtly 
jokes of the Literary mob. Few women students have ever entered the 
University who have commanded more respect and won more esteem by their 
strength of character and bright originality than Grace Hunter, Queen of Clubs.

HHIGH club is Miss Stovel, and during her college course she has taken in 
a choice collection of tricks. This history commences with the morning 
of October 1st, 1894, when Miss Stovel took her breakfast as usual, and 
immediately afterwards trotted over to Varsity to enroll with the glorious class 
of '98. Her energy, amiability, zeal, and executive and literary ability soon 
brought her into prominence, and during her brilliant course she has held many 
very important offices with great credit to herself. In her first year, she modestly 
hid her light under a bushel, but, as a sophomore, she began to take that interest 
in the Ladies' Glee Club which she continued to show throughout her course. 
In that year she was chosen curator of the Club; in the next year she became 
vice-president, and so successful was the Club under her regime, that in her 
fourth year she was unanimously elected president. As corresponding secretary 
of the Women's Literary Society in her second year, she attracted no small 
notice by her bright reports of the " Lit's" proceedings in 'Varsity, and was accordingly 
elected to the Editorial Board of the paper in her third year. She continued to 
do literary work, and in her senior year became a " staff contributor " 
to Varsity, and a member of the Editorial Board of Corontoncnsis. Owing 
to her popularity, and, incidentally, her proficiency as a platform speaker, she 
this year leads the amazons of the Ladies' Lit. of University College in their 
annual debate against the Victoria Ladies' Lit. 



DIAMONDS first claimed the honor and the pleasure of Miss Kirkwood's 
company, but Spades and Clubs and Hearts were not slow in filing 
counterclaims. So prominent has she been in college societies, however, that 
judgment was finally given in favor of Clubs. In the Fall of '94 she was 
one of the bevy of Brampton students who came to college to join the glorious 
Class of '98. No girl ever came to the University with such a high 
recommendation. At her matriculation she topped the honor list in the difficult 
department of Classics, and throughout her University course she has most ably 
upheld her own reputation and the credit of the college girls by consistently 
occupying first place in this honor department. Nor have her energies 
been confined to researches in Classic lore. At the first Class meeting she was chosen 
councillor and in her sophomore year was elected first vice-president, and many 
of the college functions owe much of their success to her counsel, her energy, 
and her brightness. She has also sat on the Business Board of Varsity, and has 
always been a faithful, energetic member of the Classical Association. Throughout 
her course she has been prominent in the Ladies' Glee Club and the Y. W. C. A., 
having acted as corresponding secretary of the latter. That she appears as a 
Club this year is partly due to her position as secretary of Dr. Tracy's Bible 
Class. Miss Kirkwood is this year the favorite candidate in the race for the 
McCaul Gold Medal in Classics — a prize that has always fallen to the lot of 
a man in previous years. She has not only won the esteem of all by her 
distinguished stand in studies and societies of the college, but her energy, her 
originality ,^her; amiability and sterling ■worth have won her a host of hearty 
friends. In short to this many sided college girl anything even to Greek is easy.

OVER Miss Webb there has teen much dispute, both Hearts and Clubs 
contesting for the honor of her company. However, as '98 has been 
favored with a large number of Hearts, the editors decided that she should 
be enrolled among the Clubs. Poor Hearts I Lucky Clubs ! From her first 
appearance in the Ladies' Dressing Room in the fall of '94, Miss Webb has 
taken a prominent part in University affairs. Her pretty face, her amiability, 
and her sympathetic nature have won for her a host of friends, and her executive 
ability, energy and zeal have won for her a host of offices. As a " blooming 
freshette " she was elected treasurer of the Women's Literary Society and as a 
junior the Glee Club bestowed the same office upon her. In her senior year 
the general appreciation of her talents was marked by her election to the office of 
first vice-president of the Class Society, a position she has filled with the greatest 
credit to herself. She is also vice-president of the Glee Club, in the success of 
whose concert she was a great factor, her ability to sell tickets being marvellous. 
The meetings of the Women's Literary Society have often been enlivened, and its 
members delighted, by her dramatic talents, which have always been most 
graciously placed at their disposal. Altogether, Miss Webb has made a great 
success of her Varsity course. 



CIIS Club is of the sub-order, known as policeman's baton, generally concealed 
in a smooth and unobtrusive case, and she has upon several occasions of 
popular excitement laid about her with constabulary vigor in the interests of 
law and order. Miss Macdonald's preparatory years were spent in England, 
France and Germany and at Bishop Strachan School here, so that her mind 
was more than usually well stored with knowledge before she entered on her 
course. Her career in college has been very successful, she having easily headed 
the General Course in the third year and done special work in History and 
English. She is also a member of the "Lit," and a most enthusiastic fencer. 
But it is for her marked literary abilities that Miss Macdonald is best known, 
and the Class of '98 look forward to the time when she will bring distinction 
upon them. For the present Miss Macdonald occupies the positions of editor 
of Sesame and associate editor of Cororttonensis, and both publications owe 
much to the charm of her literary style. 


CHIS young lady is a resident of this fair city of Toronto. After 
matriculating from Harbord Collegiate Institute she entered Victoria 
College with the Class of '97, but later threw in her lot with '98. She has 
been one of " Vic's " most popular undergraduates, and has held various offices 
in the College societies. Always foremost in anything characterized as fun, her 
winning smile and ready wit will be greatly missed around the College. 



ONE of the Strathroy students who entered Varsity in the autumn of '94 
was Miss Jennie M. Pearce. From her sweet manners and obliging 
disposition you might not think her a club at all. But she is — being president 
of the Y. W. C. A., which office is one of the most important among the 
women students. In unconscious preparation for this responsible position she 
fulfilled the duties of recording secretary in her junior year, and took a course 
in Apologetics at Victoria. This preparation is warranted. A regular attendant 
of class receptions, Miss Pearce has made very many friendships among the students 
of the College. 


H TRUMP Club, this. She matriculated from Harbord Collegiate Institute, 
obtaining a scholarship in mathematics. In her the Class of '98 finds one 
of its most important Clubs, as in all the societies of University College Miss 
Northway has taken a very active part. She was the class's first vice-president ; 
in her sophomore year she was councillor for the Women's u Lit," and is 
now its vice-president while all through her course she has been a faithful 
member of the Y. W. C. A. Her business capacities have been demonstrated 
by the success she has achieved as assistant business manager of Sesame and 
member of the Business Board of the Corontonensis. Ever ready to help 
where her assistance is required, and sympathetic with all around her, her 
bright, happy disposition has won her many friends. 



fROM Allenford Miss Danard came to Victoria. Her preparatory education 
was in Owen Sound Collegiate Institute, and before entering upon her 
studies at the University she completed her professional training at the Normal 
School and College. During her course she has held offices in her class and 
the Y. W. C. A., and is now vice-president of Victoria's Women's Literary 
Society. In meeting Miss Danard one is impressed with her strength of 
character and loftiness of ambition ; she is essentially a thinker and is therefore 
able to give a good reason for any opinion she holds. To these she unites 
that "genius for hard work" which must secure for her success in life. 


HLL the way from Port Arthur, Miss Gibbs came to Bishop Strachan 
School to prepare for the University, which institution she entered in the 
Fall of '94. Since then she has distinguished herself in physical culture, 
developing all her members even to four modern tongues. She is president of 
the Women's Fencing Club, where her " cut over and disengage " is the terror 
of all who engage her foil. Of too quiet a disposition to make friends with a 
great many, she has won the high esteem and the warm affection ot all who 
have had the pleasure of becoming intimate with her. 



lVTJISS WINIFRED WILSON, of Victoria College, appears in the list of 
I 'A Clubs as president of the Women's Literary Society of Victoria College, 
but again the editors have hesitated, for her originality and depth of character 
entitle her to sparkle among the Diamonds. Miss Wilson is another of the 
few merry-sided college girls. Socially and as a student a success, she yet finds 
much time to devote to the consideration of social and political problems, and 
to these she brings that depth of sympathy and wide, dispassionate judgment 
which is possibly only too rare. The Class of '98 may indeed be glad to 
rank Miss Wilson among their members. 


ONE of the most happily original young ladies that ever took an honor 
Mathematical Course is Miss Martha Harvey. Her unique charm of 
manner told so well on her classmates at Victoria College that they attested their 
esteem by offering her the beautiful golden emblem of popularity, "the senior 
stick." Though learned in the arts of measuring and testing she is incommensurable 
in happy spontaneity of expression and goodness of soul. In her time she has 
been vice-president and councillor of the Mathematiccl and Physical Society, 
secretary and councillor of the Victoria Women's Literary Society, and vice-president, 
historian and treasurer of Class '98. 


i pgF 



"these many years, since we began to be, 
mhat have the gods done with us?" 

N such a contemplative spirit the pensive Junior who has passed from the festive 
sphere of earlier undergraduate life and already has begun to anticipate with a 
certain shivering horror the day when the fatal B. A. after his name shall bar 
him forever from the ambitions, hopes and struggles of his first student days, 
reviews the irrecoverable past. And what food for thought lies there ? A smile lights up 
the face once so comely but now marked with the lines of care, which the Junior year 
brings, as the mind that lurks behind that visage recalls the verdant notions of freshman 
days and summons back to memory the latent ambitions then formed, only to be unduly 
disappointed oftentimes, but just as often, perhaps, to be changed for more substantial aims. 
And the smile broadens and deepens as thought dwells upon the keen delight with which 
the emergence from freshman status to sophomore privileges 'was hailed. How proud every 
student becomes when no longer can men truthfully dub him " fresh !" How we doted 
on that cane with the silver — or tin — head, which to our minds caused a flutter of excitement 
every time it appeared on Yonge Street, and how we plotted vengeance on any cheeky 
freshman who should ( Heaven save the mark and incidentally the language ! ) attempt to 
" cut us out V And then, too, how unsatisfied we at last became ; there still remained years 
above us, and nothing would please us but promotion quick and — sure ! 

And now, kind readers, we are persons of importance in this University, only a little 
lower than the angels — to wit, the Seniors. We are eligible and indeed have a sole right 
to many offices that once seemed very far off. We have become grave and reverend in 
our own eyes, feeling that we have now, in part, become standards to others, wherefore we 
must frolic no more as once we did. 

" Nee lusisse pudet, sed non incidere ludum." 
In short we have lost much in gaiety, but in gravity we have been gainers. We 
have laid away the silver-headed cane and assumed the glasses ; we refuse any special 
prominence to April, and commence work on October 1st. 

Juniors, after the metamorphosis, know ye yourselves ! 'Tis a sign to prepare for higher 
duties, and the highest work. Bravely onward then ! There is something in patricianism 
after all. Gad zooks! I begin to cheer up! Though behind us lies the jester's cap and 
stick, there awaits us a crown and a sceptre ; a few months and they will all be shouting, 
" Le roi est mort : vive le roi !"

IMstory of f oo. 

O the Senior, about to leave the sweetly quiet life of the quadrangle and 
the campus, about to enter upon the hard, thankless life of the work-a-day 
world, the memories of his freshman days are pleasant indeed. But as 
he sits in his great arm-chair before the glowing grate, learning how to 
blow smoke rings, or practicing some popular air on his banjo, the Sophomore lets his 
memory travel forward only. He dreams of the future, when as a senior or a junior 
he will rise in the "Lit" and move mighty resolutions; he may dream of the present, 
but of the past, of his freshman days, he dreams never a dream. He speaks of the 
time "when I was a freshman" as if it had been ten or twelve years ago, instead of 
a few short months. But what would the University do without the dear Sophs.? 
It is the Sophs, who make the Convocation exercises the boisterous success they are ; it 
is the Sophs, who give Church Receptions and Class Receptions their patronage; 
it is the Sophs, who attend the football matches and cheer the boys in blue and white 
on to victory; it is to the Sophs, that one must look for noise at the Halloween 
demonstration and applause at public debates. Verily, without the Sophs. — the noisy, 
romping, boisterous, laughing, talking Sophs. — Varsity would be a dull and dreary 
old place. Three cheers for '00 1

Frtstory of the freshman Class* 

| HORT must be the history of the Freshman Class, but those few weeks which 
it covers have been eventful weeks for many a boyish heart. 

During those weeks the Freshman has left home for the first time, left a 
quiet, orderly home to enter a busy city, to join a mighty band of students 
of practically the same age but of widely different stations and temperaments, and holding 
opinions that are as numerous as they are shifting and unstable. 

In those few weeks he has entered upon a new life — the life of a man — the life of one 
who must work and must think for himself. Many are the surprises, many are the 
temptations, many are the delights which greet him during his first term at college, and 
the student who does not return to the bosom of his family at Christmas a better, a wiser, 
a stronger man, had better not return to college with the New Year. 

In that short term he has seen for the first time a University Convocation, a Public 
Debate, a Halloween demonstration — perhaps for the first time a football match. For the 
next three years he will look forward eagerly to the repetition of these experiences, and in 
years to come, when he looks back upon the experiences of his college course, he will 
remember none more vividly than those of his Freshman year.

The graceful grey stone building of University College has won the enthusiastic admiration of many a 
European traveller. Several English men of letters, in their tours through America, have found nothing that 
could at all compare with the architectural gems of the Old World, save this Norman pile; and in their letters 
and memoirs and miscellaneous works, many references are made to its exquisite beauty. 

The University Building is mentioned even in English fiction. William Black, the novelist, was charmed by its 
"simple grace and beauty," and in his "Green Pastures and Piccadilly" (chapter xxxv.), the following paragraphs 
are to be found: — 

jUT there was one point about Toronto which they did most 
honestly and warmly admire, and that was the Norman 
Gothic University. To tell the truth, we had not seen 
much that was striking in the way of architecture since 
crossing the Atlantic; but the simple grace and beauty of 
this grey stone building wholly charmed these careless travellers ; and 
again and again they spoke of it in after days, when our eyes could find 
nothing to rest upon but tawdry brick and discolored wood. There is 
a high tower at this Toronto College, and we thought we might as well 
go up to the top of it. The lieutenant, who was never at a loss for 
want of an introduction, speedily procured us a key, and we began to 
explore many curious and puzzling labyrinths and secret passages. At 
last we stood on the flat top of the square tower ; and all around us 
lay a fresh and smiling country, with the broad waters of Ontario coming 
up close to the busy town. We went walking quite carelessly about this 
small enclosed space ; we were chatting with each other ; and occasionally 
leaning on the parapet of grey stone. 

"Who was it who first called out? Far away over there, in the haze 
of the sunlight — over the pale ridges of the high lying woods — a faint 
white column rose into the still sky, and spread itself abroad like a cloud. 
Motionless, colourless, it hung there in the golden air ; and for a time we 
could not make out what this strange thing might be. And then we 
bethought ourselves — that spectral column of white smoke, rising into 
the summer sky, told where Niagara lay hidden in the distant woods."

University College Literary and Scientific Society. 

'T^HE Literary and Scientific Society of University College was founded in 1851, and it has had 
^ a prosperous existence ever since that date. It has done much to promote the love of literary 
work for its own sake among the undergraduates, by giving prizes to essayists, readers and debaters 
and holding public debates, of which the 154th recently took place. The list of prizemen, which 
ends about 1886, contains some of the most distinguished names in the country, and no doubt many 
of the men who now debate and read essays at the Society will in time be known from one end 
of Canada to the other and will remember that the training for their high station has been received 
at the Literary Society of their Alma Mater. 

The Society has also been the organization through which the undergraduate body has made 
itself heard. It appoints almost two-thirds of the Editorial Board of the College paper. On its floor 
have been taken at least the initiatory steps towards redressing grievances or changing the policy of 
the undergraduates in their relations with each other, with the faculty, or with the outside world. 
It is perhaps on this account that it his come to consider itself endowed with an almost absolute 
power over the students. This, under its present constitution, it has not, but there is a feeling that 
there should be some such organization at the University. If such were formed, it might be necessary 
to create a new body to do this work and leave the Literary Society to the narrower field. To do 
this would, in a great measure, cause the ancient glory of the Society to depart. Let this never be the 
case, but rather let her ever continue to flourish, and let present freshmen make proper preparations for 
celebrating her semi-centennial when they have reached their final year. 

Cbe CClomen's Literary Society of University College. 

/*NN the first page of the Minute Book of this Society is found the following declaration : " A 
^* meeting of the women undergraduates of University College was held on Nov. 19, 1891. It 
was decided to form a general society of the women of the College with the object of promoting 
literary work and encouraging public speaking." From that time on, the " Lit " has flourished. It 
began with a membership of 54 ; this somewhat decreased for a year or two, only to rise again 
last year to 65. As the representative body of the women Students, this society is an active factor in 
college social life — its " functions " being no less successful than are its literary programmes and 
dramatic productions. 

Literary Society of Victoria University. 

/"NVER forty years ago this Society was organized, and while its course has not always run with 
^"^ uniform smoothness, its history since 1893 has certainly been a pleasant one, and the Literary Society 
is now the most important student organization in Victoria College. It is the medium of communi- 
cation between the faculty and the students of the College. The meetings are conducted on the 
parliamentary principle, there being two parties, a ministry and a government and an opposition side of 
the house. S. T. Tucker, of the Senior Class, is the capable and energetic president of the Society 
this year. 

Cbe Cdomen's Literary Society of Victoria University. 

VICTORIA also numbers among its active societies a " Ladies ' Lit.' " It is at present in a very 

* flourishing condition, as is proven by the success of the Oration contest and the Reception 

recently held. The president's chair this year is occupied by Miss Winifred Wilson, '98, a fact 

that is sufficient guarantee that a high standard of literary excellence is maintained at the meetings.

VERY Tuesday afternoon those who are students of classic lore meet 
and listen to learned papers written and read by learned members 
and which are then discussed. Literary subjects, historical subjects, 
philosophical subjects are there considered, and so successful has the 
work of the Association been that to many of its members Plato and Cicero, 
Aristotle and Tacitus are as simple as the Part Second Book of Reading Lessons. 
This year many innovations have been introduced in the work of the 
Association. It now meets weekly instead of fortnightly, and frequently union 
meetings are held with the other departmental Societies. 


The following is a list of this year's energetic officers :-

VERY two weeks during the college term the hard-working students 
in the department of Mathematics and Physics meet to discuss planes 
and angles, methods and magnets, curves and parabolas, and a host 
of other subjects of interest to a mathematical student. Nor is the more general, 
less technical, side neglected, for papers are frequently read on the history and 
the function of Mathematics, and each term the biographies of great mathematicians 
and physicists are studied and discussed. 

That the Society is so successful in its work is largely due to its able

NDER the energetic presidency of Mr- Oliver Mowat 
Biggar, '98, the Political Science Club is having a most 
successful series of meetings this year. In past years the 
attendance has been rather slim, but that was undoubtedly 
due to the well-known fact that College athletics and College social 
functions rely for their patronage chiefly on the "Political Science 
Individuals." So charitable were they that they forgot that "Charity 
begins at home." This year, however, the Club has met with splendid 
encouragement, and the really fine work that it is doing in Political 
Science and Historical subjects is generally recognized. 

The officers for this year are!

Natural Science 


CHE devotees of test tubes and Florence flasks, of Bunsen burners and 
dissecting trays, of salts and acids, of scalpels and microscopes, have a 
Society which they call the " Natural Science Association " — and a very 
progressive and prosperous Society it is. The papers read before it are often 
of great general interest — a fact that goes far to account for the splendid 
attendance at the meetings.

CHE Philosophers of the University are not behind their fellow-students 
in having a Society of their own. They meet regularly, and discuss 
Aristotle and Plato and Kant, Green and Hume, Mill and Locke and Hobbes 
and Herbert Spenser ; and if the size of the audiences and the enthusiasm shown 
at the meetings are safe criterions, this, the youngest of the departmental Societies, 
is in a very flourishing condition.

[ECTURE ROOM 7 is the home of the College Chess enthusiasts, 
and although they are a very quiet, unassuming, taciturn crowd, 
they are nevertheless very eager and progressive students of the 
great game. This Club, though established but a few years ago, is one of the 
strong organizations about the University. It has held successful tournaments 
in the past, and hopes to do so in the future, thereby creating an interest in 
the ** royal game " among those who should best be able to play it, namely, 
the men who train their minds by a college course.

JVTusical Societies 




O STUDENT organization, not even the Rugby Football Club, has done so 

much to spread abroad the fame of the University of Toronto as the University 

Glee Club. Many an Ontario town looks forward each Christmas season for a 

visit from the boys in the caps and gowns, and right royal is the welcome that 

is invariably accorded to the college musicians. 

The Glee Club is one of the oldest Societies in the University, having been organized in 
1879, and no Society can boast of having done better work. The objects of the Club are 
many and various. First and foremost it strives to cultivate a higher musical taste among 
the undergraduates. To introduce renowned musical artistes to the concert-going public of 
Toronto, to tell the people of Ontario something of College life and spirit, to further the 
success of the various social functions in the University, and to foster a feeling of good 
fellowship amcng College men, are secondary objects — but objects that are ever kept in view. 
There are between fifty and seventy-five voices in the Club, and frequent practices are 
held throughout the Michaelmas term. In December of each year a grand concert is given 
in Massey Music Hall, Toronto ; and the men then start on a short concert tour through Eastern or Western Ontario, returning to their homes in 
time to nicely recover before Christmas from the excitement and strain of concerts and receptions and dances. 

This year the Club, under the able, energetic presidency of George H. Black, and the leadership of Herr Rudolf Ruth, reached a high 
degree of musical proficiency, and the annual concert and tour were remarkable successes. 

It is the intention of the Club to issue this year, for the second time in its history, a University of Toronto Song Book, the great 
popularity of the former work having convinced the officers that a new book, containing better music and newer college songs, 'will meet with 
an enthusiastic reception from the public. 

The following is a list of the officers for this college year : —

, Banjo and Guitar 

CHE Varsity Banjo, Guitar and Mandolin Club is a much younger institution 
than the Glee Club, having been organized in J 89 1. Already, however, 
this energetic club has won an honored place among college institutions, and 
a warm place in the hearts of college students and the music lovers both of 
Toronto and of Ontario at large. 

At first the Club included banjos and guitars only, and none but very 
simple music was attempted. Under the splendid leadership of the ever-popular 
George F. Smedley, better known as "Smed," the Club made rapid strides 
towards musical excellence, and the introduction of mandolins, some four years 
ago, is an indication of the increased proficiency and the soaring ambitions of 
the stringed musicians of the college. 

The Glee Club is now accompanied by the Banjo, Guitar and Mandolin 
Club on its annual Christmas 'tour, and all report that nowhere could a 
kindlier welcome be given, a truer hospitality extended, prettier girls met 
with, or more enjoyable suppers and dances arranged than in the Canadian 
towns and cities which these jolly Clubs visit.

Cbe Ladies' 6lee Club of University College. 

HIS Club was organized in J 892, chiefly for the purpose of supplying the music 
at the meetings of the Women's "Lit." As time went on the Glee Club 
grew until it emerged from under the protection of the "Lit," and gained 
an independent existence. Its progress has been very rapid. For two 
years, in December '94 and '95, it furnished a portion of the programme in 
the concerts of the Men's Glee Club, but aiming still higher the Ladies' Glee Club gave its 
own first concert last year, and followed up the success it won then by scoring another 
in its second annual concert on December 9th of this year.

CHE University College Y. M. C. A. has for its object the fostering of the 
religious life of the undergraduates, and the promotion of Christian fellowship 
and the furtherance of aggressive Christian work among the students, for the 
students, by the students. 

That these aims are lofty and grand can not but be admitted by all, nor 

can anyone deny that the Association is realizing its high ideals in large meas re. 

Each year, when the students come to the city at the opening of the term in 

October, the Secretary supplies them with the addresses of, and much valuable 

labor-saving information about, a host of convenient boarding houses. Early in 

the term, the Association tenders a reception to the new students in its cosy little 

building, Association Hall, and thus the men become acquainted with the 

Christian men of the other years and are introduced to the work of the Association. 

Every Thursday afternoon the Association is addressed by some man 

prominent in Christian work. Every Sunday afternoon Bible classes are conducted, 

and five class prayer meetings are held each week. 

The Association is also interested in the work of the Canadian Colleges' Mission and in the Intercollegiate Movement. 

Altogether the University College Y. M. C. A. is doing a noble work, doing it quietly, conscientiously, enthusiastically and thoroughly. 

Although the Association has been a flourishing college institution since 1873, it has never had such a successful year as the present one, 

and a large measure of that success is undoubtedly due to the untiring efforts of the ever popular, ever ready and ever active general 

secretary, Fred. H. Barron, B. A.

CHIS Association, the first of the many societies of the women students of 
University College, was organized in 1887 by Miss Sybil Wilson, daughter 
of the late Sir Daniel Wilson, a woman of strong personal characteristics and 
broad sympathies. 

The first meeting was held in the parlor of the College Y.M.C.A., and 
through the kindness of that Association, the Society still continues to meet in 
their building. Such was the beginning ; at present sixty-four names are 
enrolled, while for the past three years, in addition to the regular meeting on 
Wednesday afternoon, a Bible Class has been held every Sunday. During the 
present year a Missionary Study Class has been organized and meets weekly ; 
also a daily prayer-meeting is held every morning in the College. The object 
of the Society is now, as in J887, the development of Christian character 
among its members, and the prosecution of active Christian work, particularly 
among the College girls.

E fight like heroes, fall like men, 
We struggle, pull and tussle ; 

Again brave days arise, again 
The long-degraded hustle ! 

What if it cost us eye or limb ? 

The glory's all the greater ; 
Look you, the dash, the life, the vim ! 

Pity the cautious waiter! 

"Oh what a kick!" The ball sails high, 
They cluster round it dropping, 

Heave for the wight a mighty sigh, 
That rushing wing-line stopping. 

"Ye gods, he runs, eludes, runs on, 
Can no one stop his rushing ! " 

Then are they built of iron and brawn, 
He passes lightly, brushing. 

"Well tackled, sir!" the plaudits rend 
The windy sky with praising. 

What if the souls of heroes bend 
In victory's banners raising ! 

Surely a game for heroes this, 

Sanded arena shaming; 
Joy of the savage, perfect bliss, 

Yourself and others maiming.

Htbletic Hssociation. 

HE flourishing condition of athletics in the University of Toronto is undoubtedly 
due to the fact that all the student sporting clubs are under the control of the 
Athletic Association. This splendid organization among the different clubs is the 
result of years of labor, and a few more years will no doubt see the arrangement 
perfected in a few of its minor details. 

The Association itself, of which every student in the University is a member, meets but 
once a year, and it is governed by and its business transacted by a Directorate of twenty-six 
members. The campus and lawns of the University are under the immediate control of this 
Directorate, and all teams desiring to use them for practices or games must make application 
to that board. That the control exercised by the Association may be more than a name, each 
athletic club is required to submit to the Directorate each year a list of its officers and a 
statement of its finances.

Rugby football. 

FEW YEARS AGO Rugby was played only by a few men who had learned the game at Upper Canada 
College, Bishop Ridley's School, Trinity School, Port Hope, and a lew other places, before coming to 
Toronto. No one else took any interest in the game for some time ; then, gradually, interest was aroused 
in the Faculty, and among the undergraduates, and to-day Rugby Football is as closely connected with 
University life as the work of the Curriculum. The President has encouraged the game during the last 
few years, and most of the Faculty are enthusiastically devoted to the welfare and success of the Fifteen. 
In 1895 Varsity, captained by A. F. Barr and Joe McDougall, won both the championship of Ontario 
and that of Canada. The result was a powerful impetus to interest in the game. Each year in Arts and each affiliated 
college now has a team, and Vice-Chancellor Mulock has donated a cup to the team victorious in a series of games 
known as the Mulock Cup Series. This year there were ten clubs in the series, viz.: '98, '99, '00, '01 Arts, 3rd and 4th 
Year Meds., 1st and 2nd Year Meds., Knox, St. Michael's, Dentals and S. P. S. The cup was won by '99 Arts, and 
then lost in a challenge game with the 3rd and 4th Year Meds. 

Last year Varsity's Senior Fifteen won the Ontario but lost the Canadian championship to Ottawa College in 
a great game at Rosedale, Toronto. 

This year, as during the last five years, Varsity placed three teams in the field. The senior team, owing to a 
series of unfortunate circumstances, succumbed early in the season. 

The Intermediate Fifteen, captained by A. W. Tanner, won the championship of Ontario and also that of 
Canada. Throughout the season they lost but one game — the first one and scored 192 points, with 50 points scored 
against them. 

The Junior team, captained by E. W. Beatty, followed in the wake of the Intermediates, and won both championships 
in the junior series. 

Rugby in Canada is quite different from Rugby in the United States. In Canada fifteen men play on each side ; in 
the United States eleven. It would take too much space to explain the differences in the game, which relate to the scrim- 
mage and, in fact, to the whole play. It is these differences which have made it impossible to pit Varsity's Rugby Fifteen 
against the elevens of the great American colleges. Varsity is eagerly looking forward to the consummation of some plan 
whereby they can meet Yale, Harvard or Princeton and battle for international honors.

CENNIS is naturally a very popular game at the University, and the experts with the racquet among the men and 
women of the College are many. During the examination season in May the splendid courts of the Club 
are well patronized, tennis being probably the favorite exercise then on account of its lightness and its bracing effects. 
Each year the Tennis Club holds two tournaments — one in June and the other in October. For competition in 
the October tournament there are two trophies : The Carruthers' Cup, presented by Adam Carruthers, M. A., 
and The Hoskin Challenge Cup, presented by John Hoskin, LL.D.

CHE Members of this Club are any of the women graduates or undergraduates who pay the requisite annual 
fee. It was established in the spring of J 893 under the very efficient Presidency of Miss Johnston, and 
from the beginning of its existence has found many ardent adherents among the college girls, its initial member- 
ship, which has, however, steadily increased, being 27. For a long time the Club had no permanent courts, 
and so was considerably handicapped. In September, 1896, a successful tournament was held, and in addition fo 
the last two years its members have entered in the events open to them in the tournaments given by the 
Men's Tennis Club.

Cricket Club. 

LjS a college sport Cricket occupies a peculiar place in the 
University of Toronto. There is a Cricket Club, and its 
members are enthusiastic lovers of the "gentleman's game." The 
Club has its officers and are responsible to the Athletic Association 
Directorate just as other clubs are, yet it is not looked upon 
in the same light. The cricketers of the University play simply 
for the love of the game, not for championship honors. They 
do not enter a league nor arrange a tournament. But for all 
that, the University of Toronto Cricket Club is a worthy and 
prosperous organization. 

Its officers for this year are : —

ROBABLY to many an American student the University of Toronto is known 

simply as the home of the Lacrosse Club that holds the Intercollegiate Championship 

of America. Lehigh, Harvard, Cornell and many other colleges have crack teams, 

but when they meet the famous Varsity Club from Toronto, all their skill and 

science count for nought. 

Of course, Lacrosse is the national sport of Canada, and it is perhaps hardly fair to compare 
other American colleges with Toronto, either in this game or in hockey. 

The Lacrosse Club is in a very flourishing state. Practices are held each spring, and 
shortly after the close of the annual May Examinations the team starts on an extended tour 
through the Eastern States. The musical clubs and the baseball club both go on tours, but the 
tour of the Lacrosse Club is far more extended, and attended with far more fame than the tours 
of any other college organization. Already Mr. C. A. Moss, the business manager, has arranged 
for games next spring with Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Lehigh and McGill Universities, and with 
the Montreal Athletic Club and the Crescent Athletic Club of Brooklyn. 

Next spring for the first time the II. team will be sent on a tour through Western 
Ontario, to visit such enthusiastic Lacrosse towns as Seaforth, Clinton, St. Mary's, Goderich, etc. 

Varsity's I. Twelve will probably be chosen from the following expert players: — F. A. 
Cleland (Capt.), Snell, Lloyd, Groves, P. A. Greig, Graham, Wales, Sutton, W. A. Mackinnon, B.A., 
J. A. Jackson, B. A., Brown, Morrison, Martin, G. Cooper, B. A., Hanley, Doyle and Blackwood. 
Other players may make themselves known, however, before the touring team is chosen. 

The officers of the Lacrosse Club for this season are: —

Hssociation football. 


LTHOUCH Association football is undoubtedly second in interest to Rugby at the 
University, there are not a few who prefer the game which is certainly more 
deserving of the name of " football." Professor McCurdy, who, it is said, first 
introduced a football to the University of Toronto, is an enthusiastic supporter of 
the game, and by his example he kindles the enthusiasm of many. A series of inter-year 
year and inter-college matches are held during each fall term, and this season Varsity are 
Inter-college Champions of Toronto.

ASE-BALL, Lacrosse and Tennis are the three great games at the University during 
the spring. A large number of aspirants come out to practice for a place on 
the touring team. During the month of May a series of games is played on 
s the Varsity lawn, and towards the end of the month the nine starts on its 
famous annual tour through Western Ontario and Eastern Michigan. On the tour, to win 
games is a secondary object, the prime object being to have a good time — and a good time 
they invariably have. One of the features of the trip is the team's annual game with nine 
of the D. A. C, Detroit. 

The officers for next spring have not yet been appointed, but R. H. Greer, '98, will in 
all probability be captain and J. W. Hobbs, '98, manager. The officers for this year are as

Rowing club 

LTHOUGH Toronto is bounded on three sides by water, the University Building 
itself is a considerable distance from any place suitable for rowing. The result 
has been that, until last year, the college athletes have never entered the dorruin 
of naval sports. 

Last May, however, a Rowing Club was organized, and the Varsity crew made an 
excellent showing. 

The crew, which was composed of Messrs. J. T. R. Burnside, G. G. Jordan, W. E. 
Douglas and H. F. Gooderham, was trained by Ned Hanlan. The Club entered this crew 
in the Northern and North-western Regatta, held at Detroit, and it met with remarkable 
success, winning the Junior Fours of America. On another page will be found a photo of 
the crew in its shell, lying in the Detroit River and a photograph of the four who brought 
honor on themselves, their Club, their College and their country. The officzrs of the University

CHE devotees of foil and mask are many in the University 
of Toronto, and there are few student organizations more 
progressive than the Fencing Club. Mr. A. Williams, 
the instructor in the University Gymnasium, conducts several 
class :s each year, and in the middle of the Easter term a 
tournament is held. Last year the championship -was won by 
W. D. Love, '98, with R. M. Chase, '98, a close second. 
Single-stick and bayonet exercise are also practiced by members 
of the Club, and many of them are proficient in all three arts.

HT a meeting of the Women's Literary Society in December, 1895, it was 
resolved to organize a Women's Fencing Club. The College Council 
supplied the foils and other necessities, and the Club soon had a large and 
enthusiastic membership. Under the training of Mr. A. Williams, the gymnasium 
instructor, many of the women graduates and undergraduates have gained 
considerable skill in this graceful art. Interest in the Club has steadily grown, 
and this year the membership numbers over fifty.

IF Canada has any other national sport besides 
lacrosse it is hockey. This game is just 
beginning to be appreciated around the University 
and the splendid showing made by last year's 
team will no doubt do much to enhance its 
popularity during the present season. 

Although last year's team was very light, it 
was remarkably fast, and succeeded in getting into 
the finals in the Ontario Hockey Association, but 
when the championship seemed within reach the 
boys in blue and white 'were defeated by the team 
of Queen's University, Kingston. 








of the most important, as it is one of the most 
To describe the social life of the undergraduate 

'HE social side of their existence is one 
interesting, features of a student's life. 

is to describe half of all that is good in his college experience and training. But much of, 
perhaps the best part of, that social life is hardly included under the dignified title of " Social Events " 
A long stroll and a long chat with a college chum; a quiet smoke after dinner before a glowing 
Residence grate; a political or social or religious or literary discussion over the dinner table at one 
of the student boarding-houses or restaurants; a jolly game of pedro or whist in a room filled with 
cigarette and pipe smoke; a merry time spent at a student "feed" of crackers and cheese and pie 
and pilfered cake, or perhaps a "banquet" of turkey and preserves and cocoa and cake, received 
in a welcome express parcel from home ;— these and similar experiences constitute a large share of 
the really valuable social life of the ordinary undergraduate of Toronto University. Many, however, 
look for their social life outside of college circles altogether; they divide their time between the gown 
and the town ; they make friends in the city, and attend card parties and dinner parties and dancing 
parties, at which they meet pretty girls who know more about millinery and society gossip and 
less about French and Mathematics than the College Girl. Others, again, follow a middle course; in this number are those who attend 
a "church reception" in a crowd, and after talking to the clergyman and the Sunday School superintendent and the leader of the Bible Class 
and the officers of the church and the pretty girls all evening, appropriate as much of the refreshments as their overcoat pockets will hold, 
and then repair to a student room and "feast till midnight." 

The regular " social events " of the University are, with perhaps two exceptions, very modest functions, though they are probably none 
t^e less enjoyable on that account. Many of the professors and lecturers give occasional dinner parties or afternoon teas to some of the men 
and women in the h'gher years, and in this way the students are given a very welcome opportunity of becoming personally acquainted with 
the members of the faculty, and learn to see a new side of their character when before they had known them simply as walking encyclopedias 
on his particular subject or as awful monsters waiting to prey upon examination candidates. More modest are the afternoon teas, which 
some students occasionally give to their student friends. This is a comparatively new phase of college social life and is so far confined almost 
entirely to Residence. 

Class Receptions. 

Chief among the social events, in number if not in magnificence, are the Class Receptions. Every term, each of the class societies holds 

an afternoon reception in East and West Halls, University College. At these functions, music, promenading and refreshments are the chief 

attractions, and they have proved very popular. They are held from four o'clock in the afternoon till seven o'clock, and while they are 

meant primarily for the members of the particular class holding the reception, those who attend form by no means such a limited company. 

Somewhat analagous to the class reception is the social given by the Y. M. C. A. in the College Association Hall during the first week or two 

of the Michaelmas term to "the men of the first year, and the Christian men of the other years." One only needs to attend this ever-popular 

reception once to be convinced how large a number are comprised in the latter class. 


Htbletic At-Home. 

Two years ago, the University of Toronto Athletic Association gave a splendid ball in honor of Varsity I. Rugby Team, who had 
that year won the Ontario and Canadian Championships. So successful was the function in every respect that the " Athletic At-Home " has 
now become one of the established social events of the college year. That the scene of the gaiety may be in keeping with the nature of the 
function, the "Rugby Dance," as it is often popularly called, is held in the Gymnasium, and Athletic trophies galore decorate the walls 
and the railing of the running track, which on that night is graced by the name of * the gallery." For three years now the Association has 
given an At-Home, and each successive one has been a greater success than its predecessor. This season it was held on Tuesday, Nov. 23rd, 
and His Excellency the Governor-General and Lady Aberdeen graciously extended their patronage to the function. Thanks to the energy of 
President Hobbs, Secretary Martin and the other officers of the Association, nothing was left undone that could conduce to the enjoyment of 
all who were fortunate enough to be there. 

Victoria University Conversazione. 

The leading social event in Victoria University is the Annual "Conversat." This year it was held December 3rd, and the magnificent 
home of Victoria students never saw a brighter, a more fashionable assembly than it did that night. The entire building was thrown open 
to the guests of the evening, and they wandered wherever their inclination led them. 

The Conversat is held under the auspices of the Union Literary Society and this year the following Committee had charge of 
the arrangements :— J. L. O'Flynn, B.A., Chairman; E. W. Grange, Secretary; J. W. Sifton, Treasurer; and Messrs. J. W. Baird, B.A. ; 
M. R. Chapman, B.A. ; M. W. Shepherd, '98; S. T. Tucker, '98; W. F. Hansford, '98; N. R. Wilson, '99; N. W. DeWitt, '99; 
G. A. Fergusson, '00; F. L. Farewell, '00; A. L. McCredie, '00; H. G. Martyn, '01; E. S. Bishop, '01; G. E. Porter, '0J ; R. J. D. 
Simpson; W. P. Rogers; J. A. Jackson. 

Cdomen's Literary Society Ht-Dome. 

Early in the Easter term it is the custom of the Women's Literary Society of University College to give an At-Home in the Students' 
Union Building and University Gymnasium, to which all the women students of the College and those of the men who are fortunate enough 
to hold any student office, are invited. It is certainly one of the most enjoyable functions of the year. All preparations are made with the 
same thoroughness that marks everything done by the " Women's Lit." Two years ago, the At-Home took the form of an " Evening with 
George Eliot," several of the girls representing the novelist's character in a clever little drama. Last year the function was more informal, 
and after a very enjoyable evening an impromptu dance was held on the Gymnasium floor. The office-holders are eagerly looking forward 
to this year's At-Home. 

Conversazione of the Literary and Scientific Society. 

The great social event of the year is the Conversazione of the University College Literary and Scientific Society. It is indeed one of 
the leading society events in the Toronto season. It is held in the Main Building of University College early in February, and a merry 
scene do those great old walls witness on that night. The blinking gargoyles and the gaping dragons of the West Hall look down on many 
a happy couple tripping the light fantastic toe, and the nooks and corners that abound along the corridors are well patronized. A splendid 
programme is given, splendid refreshments are served and splendid music is discoursed to leave nothing lacking in the enjoyment of all. The 
Physical students and the students of the School of Practical Science prepare at a great expense of time and trouble exhibits of their 
departments, and many a one finds in them one of the best features of the entertainment. 

Shortly after Christmas the Executive Committee of the Society begin their preparations for the function. Special committees are 
appointed, and their conveners, together with a chairman, secretary and treasurer, constitute the General Committee of Management. The 
Committee is made up this year as follows: 

J. McGREGOR YOUNG, B.A., .... Chairman. JOHN G. INKSTER, . Heating and Lighting Committee. 

W. F. MACKAY, Secretary. HAMNETT P. HILL, .... Invitation Committee. 

CHARLES M. CARSON, Treasurer. N. E. HINCH Decoration Committee.

CHE list of student publications in the University is not a long one, but 
the field is fairly well covered. Not a few of the students intend to 
" go into journalism/' and no doubt names that now appear on the title page 
of 'Varsity will some day be famous in Newspaperdom. 

The students of Toronto, however, have not as yet attempted to issue a 
college daily. In all the larger Universities in the United States, student dailies 
are published every morning, giving in brief form the news of the preceding 
day. It would be hard to say whether the lack of a daily in Toronto is to be 
regretted or not. In the opinion of many the students in the United States carry 
college journalism to a ridiculous extreme. On the other hand, however, it may 
be said that if a daily were published in Toronto University, Varsity, the leading 
student publication, would then be relieved of the responsibility of chronicling 
college events and supply college news, and could be made a literary magazine, 
pure and simple. As yet, however, no complaints have been made by the 
students about Varsity; and no demand has as yet come from them for a paper 
which will give them the news before it has passed into the region of Ancient 


" Che Varsity/' 

The chief student publication in the University of Toronto is " The Varsity" It has the dignity that age alone can lend. Its career has 
been a checkered one — and an interesting one. For ten years, from 1880 to 1890, it was published by a joint stock company of students. For 
five years, from 1890 to 1895, it was published under the management of the Literary and Scientific Society. In that year a new Constitution 
was drafted by Jas. A. Tucker, the paper's most famous editor, and since then it has been controlled by independent Editorial and Business 
Boards, the members of which are elected by the three societies most representative of the men of University College, the women of University 
College, and the students of the School of Practical Science. 

The Varsity is, to quote its own title page, "a weekly journal of Literature, University Thought and Events." 

This year's staff is as follows: — 

BURRISS GAHAN, '98, First Editor. 

JOHN M. GUNN, '98, Second Editor. 

FRED. A. CLELAND, '98 . . . . Business Manager. 

Editorial Board : -Miss E. Lynde, '98 ; A. E. McFarlane, '98 ; O. M. Biggar, '98 ; Miss C. C. Benson, '99 ; N. T. Johnston, '99 ; G. W. Ross, '99 ; 
W. H. Alexander, '99; Miss Cockburn, '00; G. F. Kay, '00; J. R. S. Scott, '00; R. M. Stewart, '01 ; W. H. Charlton, W. E. H. Carter, 
W. Foreman, S.P.S. 

Business Board:— Miss A. Ashwell, '98; George H. Black, '98; Miss H. Woolverton, '99; E. N. Armour, '99; A. N. Mitchell, '00; 
A. J. Isbester, '01 ; A. G. Piper and Lome Allan, S.P.S. 

"Acta Victoriana." 

The students of Victoria University also have a publication which they call "Acta Victoriana." It appears monthly, and not a 
number is published which would nor reflect credit on any college or body of students. This year B. A. Cohoe, '98, a Prince of 
Wales prizeman, occupies the editorial chair, a sufficient guarantee that the high literary standard of the paper will be maintained. J. W. Baird 
is Acta's business manager, and in that capacity he is doing himself and the paper ample justice. The members of the staff are : — 

J. H. Faull ; C. W. DeMille ; J. W. Baird, Business Manager ; V. J. Gilpin ; E. A. W. Dove ; G. A. Ferguson ; R. Emberson ; Miss 
Reynar ; B. A. Cohoe, Editor ; W. J. Smith ; E. W. Grange ; Miss Kerr. 

" Sesame/' 

" Sesame " is a magazine published yearly by the Women's Literary Society of University College. The first appearance was made 
last April, when it met with a warm reception, its dainty tout ensemble making it a charming souvenir of one's year at college. The 
contributions are all the original work of the women graduates or undergraduates, and as such, are, of course, of special interest to women 
students, though their intrinsic value recommends them to all. This year " Sesame " will be published early in the Easter term, and its second 
appearance will probably be a great improvement on the initial one, for the editorial and business boards are under such energetic 
management as make the success of the '98 "Sesame" a foregone conclusion. They are comprised as follows: — 

Editorial Board : Editor-in-Chief, Miss H. G. S. Macdonald, '98; Miss H. E. Downie, '99; Miss M. L. Wright, '00. 

Business Board :— Business Manager, Miss M. McKenzie, '90 ; Assistants :— Miss M. I. Northway, '98 ; Miss C. C. Benson, '99 ; 
Miss H. M. Hughes, '00. 

" College Copies/' 

The enterprising spirit of a junior, Mr. F. D. McEntes, is responsible for a newcomer making its appearance in the field of 
college journalism. While it is not strictly confined to the University of Toronto, it concerns itself chiefly with the University and her colleges 
and the sanctum sanctorum is situated in University College. 

In appearance it resembles a newspaper, though of a smaller size. It is published weekly, and strives to give in terse form the 
principal news of all the colleges in Toronto.

Who hev no uppish whim , 
So she was called plain " Kitty " 

An' he was christened "Jim." 

When Jim calls up to Kitty's 

He rings no 'lectric bell, 
But jest walks in the kitchen — 

He likes that quite as well. 
They ride no bikes, fer neither 

Has many cents to spare, 
But sometimes go a-drivin' 

Behind of Jim's old mare. 

An' they warn't made acquainted 

In any seaside walk ; 
They alius knowed each other 

From ever they could talk. 
They never heerd an op'ry, 

But what does Kitty care ? 
Fer every fall Jim takes her 

To see the County Fair. 

No boxed bokays, ner bonbons, 

Ner soov'ner spoons ner that 
Is ever sent to Kitty's ; 

But she aint cross thereat. 
They never teet-a-teeted 

At no At-Home ner Ball, 
Ner winked acrost the feathers

HY shun the life of men, its fulness, its desires ? 
Why quench within thine heart the god-enkindled fires ? 
Too long hast thou pursued a lone and thorny way, 
Pf Too long hast loved the stars above the generous day. 
Truth thou dost seek, tut she eludes thy deepest thought ; 
Toil, agony, despair — are these what thou hast sought ? 
Shall what comes after yield to all thy strivings more 
Than the vain bitter fruits of what has gone before? 
Snuff out thy light, and put thy books upon the shelf, 
And, knowing other men, find thus Thyself. 
Cast forth thy fond belief that love, laughter, wine, 
Are but for vainer men — nay, they are thine! 
Dream not the strong one hath in these no part — 
That they would soil his lips, sear up his heart ; 
And that, if he would do deeds to inspire, 
He must avoid the world and its desire. 
Dear is love's hot caress, sweet is the wine : 
These things are Life — at last let Life be thine !

H JVIan and a Girl and a Book* 

WAS CALLING on Miss Tenyss — a thing which, as I knew that poor old Claverhouse would be there that evening, I suppose I ought 
not to have done, — and it was Sunday, just after tea. Therefore we were in the bow window watching the exhibit of respectability 
and spring clothes that streamed past us on its way to evening service. 

" Don't you want to go to church ?" said Flo, looking dreamily out at a particularly dazzling hat in yellow silk ribbon and 
bright crimson roses that was going by across the road. She was sitting in a low wicker chair with a vast number of cushions in 

it, and her little feet were tapping slowly on the radiator — cold and silent, for it was a delicious May evening and the window was 
open. She was leaning back in languid abandon, very tired, and her eyes were heavy and dark and larger than ever, with the unnatural 
largeness that comes of much reading and nervousness and lack of sleep. Miss Tenyss had a very important exam, on for the day following. 
As for me — well, no exams, were very important to me just then. 

" Go to church ? " I said. No ; I'm at church — at least I'm worshipping — here. Besides, I haven't bought a spring hat yet, so why 
should I ? And I have two stiff exams, to-morrow. Would you like any more reasons ? " 

" I thought," went on Flo, languidly, " that that was why you dropped in, just to take poor wicked me to church. I know you think 
I need it. But I'm not going, and I wish you would take me for a walk for half an hour; I've got to study all night, and I don't feel a 
bit fit for it." 

" I have already walked a mile and a half to-day," I said, reluctantly, " and besides, anyhow, you can't study to-night, you're played 
out. You ought to go to bed." 

" I know that," said Flo, mournfully ; " but I can't help it. Ken — Mr. Claverhouse has a book that I want, and I haven't been able 
to get it till now. He'll be in this evening." 

* O, will he ? " I said, with disgusted surprise- " Is he going to bring it ? " 

"No, I haven't asked him yet. I'm going to send him over for it as soon as he gets here. . . . Did you say 'lucky dog'? 
What ever do you mean?" 

" 1 struck me as being appropriate," I murmured ; " sort of retriever, you know ; he looks like a — Miss Tenyss, where have you put 
my hat?" 

We went out, and strolled together over to the Park, almost in silence, watching the sun go down behind the College towers, in a cloud- 
less, windless sky. The semi-darkness deepened, the grey stone turned slowly greyer, colder, then bluish, then dense black on the fiery background 
of the west; the fire itself grew faint, and died out into the black ashes of the night; the violet of the arc lights flashed out here and there high 
up among the trees of the Park, and we went home. 

" Why, there's Mr. Claverhouse I " said Flo, with a sudden return of vivacity, and I winced. To tell the truth I had entirely forgotten 
Mr. Claverhouse. However, he was there, sitting on the verandah, and did not seem as pleased as he might have done to see me. By the way, 
the story of his engagement to Miss Tenyss got abroad in some most extraordinary way, and they both declare they did not tell a soul about 
it except me. It is very queer. 

After the usual greetings Miss Tenyss went upstairs to take off her hat, a process which lasted twelve minutes. Claverhouse was 
looking even more played out than she was. It was said that his sleep allowance during March, April and May was two hours per diem, 
and that he nearly always forgot to take it. However, I remember calling for him with a cab once at the "Lit" elections at two in the 
morning ; he had then been in bed since twelve and said he would see the party pulverized before he'd get up, which indeed he did. 

"Claverhouse, my dear boy," I said, "you look like a ghost. You really must be careful or you'll die before the results are out. 
How's work going ? " 

" O, I don't know," he said despondently. " I'm going to be in third class honors anyway. The History of Philosophy paper on 
Friday was a regular brute — knocked me clean out. I had the digest of Morley off by heart, and I'm hanged if I believe the examiner 
had ever read Morley. O, I should like to set that man a paper; I could pluck him to-morrow, I'm positive. I'm going to get plucked 


myself to-morrow anyhow ; I've got to read 670 pages of Kopff On Reason, and I haven't begun it yet. You've had some of Smithfield's 
papers, haven't you ? What kind of line does the old boy take ? " 

I fell back on the inevitable reply of the Alpha Sigma man when an outsider mentions "Secret Societies." "You probably know 
more about that sort of thing than I do," I said, "considering ." 

" No, I don't," said Claverhouse petu'antly ; " look at Friday's thing. And I tell you, Jack, it's a pretty serious matter with me. It 
makes all the difference in my life whether I stay first or that man Smith gets there." He got up and began pacing impatiently up and 
down the verandah. I felt quite sorry for the poor boy, so wrought up over an insignificant little exam. " You can't tell, you know ; the 
least little thing may lose me the place. And I can't keep this up at this pace for more than a week longer. . . . By Jove, I've a 
good mind to let it all slide now, and have a chat with Flo and a good night's rest. . . . But I can't ; it's got to go through. And 
Flo, she doesn't understand, she thinks I can come up here every evening or so and — I'm sure I wish I could — I haven't been up for a 
week now. Do you know, Jack, that I'm working eighteen hours a day?" 

"Marvellous!" I said; "I couldn't do that to save my life." 

44 Do what ? " said Flo, appearing at the door and looking with an amused glance at the figure striding up and down the verandah. 

"Mr. Claverhouse was just saying that he had not been up to see you for a week," I replied. Miss Tenyss colored a little. Claver- 
house reached her a chair, and sat down himself — tutus in medio. " Kenneth," she said gaily, " I want you to do something for me — will you ? " 

Claverhouse smiled at the exquisite face that leaned forward and looked up into his l< Anything," he said — "or everything." 

" Let me have your Kopff to-night, will you, then ? I've got an exam, on it to-morrow, and I don't know a thing that's in it. I'm 
going to cram it all night, with hot black coffee and an alarm clock that's to go off every half-hour. Is it long?" 

But Flo, dear — I have an exam, on it myself to-morrow, and — " 

" O, have you — how queer ! I suppose yours is the honor paper. But you know all about it anyhow, you know — I'm sure you do. 
Let me have it, there's a good boy." 

" I haven't ever read the confounded thing, darling," said Claverhouse miserably, " and I don't know a thing about it — and we haven't 
had any lectures on it — I've got to read it." 

Flo looked the picture of despair. " O dear, what am I to do ? she said. You can read the index in the morning — that's plenty tor 
a man like you. Why, you could get through without writing on it at all. But I'm going to get plucked unless I read it. I think you 
might let me have it, Kenneth — you can come for it to-morrow morning at eight." 

" Dearest, it isn't a matter of getting through. Don't you know I've got to beat that Smith man ? — 111 bet the old plugs read Kopff 
a dozen times by now. And I've been counting on getting that up to-night— it's the only thing on the paper I haven't read. I must get 
through it somehow — don't you understand ? " 

The girl's great eyes were lowered and sought the floor ; her voice was touched with a note of pain and entreaty that reminded one 
of Bernhardt. " Kenneth," she said, " I am going to be starred to-morrow if I don't read that book. I suppose you think that doesn't matter 
much to a girl like me, but the idea of it hurts me a good deal. I've never done anything brilliant, but I've always got through all 
right so far, and I don't know what they would say at home — I don't like to think of it. O, why didn't I get this up before ? " 

There was a long silence, and Claverhouse bit his lips. Then Miss Tenyss suddenly turned to me, as though she had just thought 
of something. "Jack," she said, " can't you borrow me a Kopff somewhere ? " 

I had an idea I could, but language was given to man to conceal his ideas. " What ? " I exclaimed, " a seven dollar book on the 
night before the exam. I It would probably be easier to borrow the exam, papers. I'll try that for you if you like." 

Claverhouse, who never knew when to keep quiet, began again. " I would gladly lend you mine, darling, if only " 

" Yes, I know you would," said Miss Tenyss with slow scorn, " if it didn't cost you anything, Mr. Claverhouse. I am very grateful 
to you for your good intentions, but " 

At this point I was seized with a strong desire to smoke a cigarette, and found that I had no matches. It took a long time to find 
them in the dark, and I returned just in time to hear Flo say " No, not now — I can't ; here comes Jack. Bring it over as soon as you can, 
■won't you ? " After which Claverhouse descended the steps and strode off home. 

Miss Tenyss was smiling wistfully into the darkness when I stepped upon the verandah. "I congratulate you," said I; "that was very 
well played. I never saw anyone manage Claverhouse before."

Of course I told her what any other man would have told her, and her face cleared a little. 
Residence — to see a man about a pony." 

I caught up to Claverhouse just as he got to the steps of his boarding-house, and went in with him. "Kopff On Reason "lay open on 
his table — at page three ; and Claverhouse looked at it and groaned. 

"Going to take it over?" I enquired. 

" I suppose so," he said, not very cheerfully. " I wish girls were a trifle reasonable — they don't seem to be. This is going to throw 
me down a couple of places, probably." 

" Half the paper was set straight out of Kopff last year," I said meditatively, whereat Claverhouse did not seem at all consoled. 
" And they say that Smithfield simply worships him. Don't see why on earth you didn't read the man before." 

" Hang it, you needn't tell me that now," he said. " I say, Jack, would you — shall I send this thing over or no ? . . . O, well, 
I've got to, I promised." 

" Look here, Claverhouse," I said solemnly, " if you don't read this you'll lose at least 25 per cent, of the paper. You have twelve 
papers, I think, so that's two per cent, of the whole exam. And that is bound to make the difference of a place to you with the compe- 
tition you're in. Do you think Flo Tenyss worth that, or don't you?" 

He looked at page three very thoughtfully for a minute or two- ** I wonder what she'll think of me," he murmured. " Poor Flo ! 
I suppose — O, well, I don't care." 

When I went out, two or three minutes later, he was so absorbed in Kopff that he did not notice. I envied him that absorption. 

I managed to borrow Miss Tenyss a Kopff. It took four hours and eight street-car tickets, but I did not mind that at all. It was 
about half-past eleven when I got it over to her house. I do not usually ring people up at that hour on Sunday night, but examinations 
are superior to etiquette. Miss Tenyss, being the only member of the household not yet gone to bed, herself came to the door. When she 
saw me she smiled sleepily. 

"Well," she said, "he hasn't brought it — yet." 

" N-o," I answered, " I didn't much expect he would. I've got you one, though. 1 hope it isn't too late, is it ? " 

Miss Tenyss took the book and glanced at it for a minute. "Jack," she said softly, "this is rather cruel of you, after what I — 
Then she stopped, and held out her hand. "Good-night," she said simply, "and thank you.' 

Only that, and a little pressure of the hand, and a look from the eyes that spoke so much more clearly than her lips. So I went 
home and went to bed, and reflected on the good night's work I had done. I had saved Claverhouse from throwing away his chances for 
the What-do-you-call-it medal; I had saved him from an infatuation for a girl for whom he was totally unfitted; and I had saved Miss 
Tenyss from the delusion that she was in love with Claverhouse — a delusion which had been particularly annoying to me.

OON-KISSED wavelets danced to see 
Love the archer play: 
Dian taught, beside the sea, 
Love with darts to slay. 

Neptune loved to watch the art 
When Love's arrows flew, 

Till one pierced his ancient heart 
Far within the blue. 

Therefore Oceans love the Moon, 

Upward to her flow; 
Luna, cold, disdains the boon, 

Back must Neptune go.

RIPPLING wavelets dance and glisten, 
Bird notes softly ring, 
Float in listless ease and listen 
To the song they sing. 

Sunlight o'er the surface glimmers, 

Gilds the circling hills, 
O'er the darkling forest shimmers, 

Tale of beauty fills. 

Lilies round about are blooming, 
Breathing incense sweet; 

Green hills in the distance looming, 
Seem the clouds to meet. 

Laughing lips my efforts mocking 

Turn the grave to gay, 
While of love and kisses talking 

Glides the away time.

T^be Hristocracy of Clothes* 

iHEN the Colonial ventures over to Oxford he learns many things. The first is that people who speak 
the same tongue do not always think the same thought. The disconcerted alien wanders into a world 
bewilderingly new and strange to him, and his experience is apt to put a damper on his Imperialism, and 
his Kiplingesque unity of the race. He finds himself tethered down to a code and a tradition quite 
foreign to his own idea of the order of things. It hurts and worries him, and takes the starch out of 
his assertiveness and the curl out of his upper lip ; but, on the whole, it does him no harm. And all of 
this brings me round to the story of Brickford. 

Now Brickford was not only a Colonial, but an academic tramp as well. Before he migrated to Oxford he had 
been an undergraduate of five universities, and had never passed an examination ; about which, however, he was 
remarkably modest— for Brickford. So, not being given to the Reading of Many Books, he was in the habit of spending 
much time at a certain Turkish Bath institution, well known to many an Oxford undergraduate, who used to repair 
thither after his more memorable bump-suppers and wine parties. Likewise there were certain elderly professors, of 
rheumatic tendencies, or with leanings toward the gout, who were not entire strangers to the place. 

There, of a bright morning, Brickford would sit in the sun, beside the plunge, wrapt in his bath-towel and his own 
contented thoughts. 

Now, one morning, it seems, when he clambered out of the cold plunge to take his seat, as usual, in his own 
sunny corner, he found, to his disgust, the seat already occupied. The intruder was a strange, gaunt, thin-legged, straggley- 
whiskered, stoop-shouldered individual of about fifty. The old fellow said good-morning pleasantly enough to Brickford, but 
Brickford, under his breath, called him an impudent old bounder. He even made room for Brickford on the bench. Now 
Brickford loved that sunny corner, after the chill of the cold plunge, so he put his pride in his pocket — not his pocket 
either, but, — well, merely out of sight — and sat down sullenly beside the impudent Old Bounder. But he spoke not a word ; 
he flattered himself that he had seen enough of Oxford for that. He wondered why these blatant old Townees could not 
be kept in a pen by themselves. 

But the Old Bounder himself insisted on a conversation, and when he learned that his young friend was Brickford of 
Brasenose, and that he came from Toronto, his delight seemed unbounded. It raised in Brickford, however, all the old 
Colonial barbarism. " Why, you know," said the Old Bounder, " I have a friend who resides in Toronto ; a very dear 
friend, indeed. Perhaps, young man, you will know him, for I mean Dr. Goldwin Smith, our old-time Regius Professor of 
History in this University. Have you ever, might I ask, had the pleasure of meeting that excellent Scholar?" 

Brickford's suspicions were at once aroused. "Goldwin Smith!" said he, contemptuously, for the Old Bounder had 
stolen his seat, and spoilt his bath, and spoken without an introduction. " Goldwin Smith ! Well, I should say not ! " 

* Remarkable ! very remarkable ! " said the Old Bounder surprisedly, thoughtfully adjusting the towel about his thin 
legs. "And am I to assume from your tone, young man, that you would regard such an event other than a pleasure?" 


Brickford stopped impatiently puddling his toes in the little pool of water which had dripped from his wet legs to 
the floor. He would stop this sort of thing. He looked about, apparently to se« that no one was within hearing 
distance, and then leaned over closer to the Old Bounder, and ■with an air of great mystery -whispered in his ear : " Haven't 
you heard about it ? It is terrible ! He daren't go out in Toronto without a body-guard ; and they burn him in effigy 
every Saturday night." Brickford, in truth, scarcely remembered who Dr. Goldwin Smith was, being by no means a 
reading man ; but he knew well enough the Old Bounder was merely beating about the bush before openly asking for 
a shilling, or some such favour. " Why, you know," continued Brickford in his mysterious whisper, " they are even talking 
of deporting him ! And if I were you, sir, I wouldn't mention his name. I wouldn't really, sir. It might not go against 
you so much in England, — but then one can't always tell, you know." And the villainous Brickford put his finger upon 
his lip with truly melodramatic eloquence. 

It was no wonder the Old Bounder pretended to be horrified. The fall of his old friend seemed to cut him to the 
heart. The two sat for some time in silence. Brickford saw that the ruse had worked beautifully. They both, in 
silence, shifted their places a little to keep in the narrow strip of sunshine. 

Then suddenly the Old Bounder said: *T like you, young man, and I should like very much to call on you at 
your college." 

" Really," cried Brickford in dismay. " Really, my dear sir, I am delighted, you know, but I am a reading man, a deuce 
of a reading man, you know ; and I am grinding awfully just now ; really, you know, I haven't a moment to myself ! " 
He did not realize the absurdity of the lie, as he sat there loafing in the sunlight. But he did not stop to think. 
He saw his danger, took one quick header into the cold plunge, sought his apartment, dressed, and made his escape. 

Two days later Brickford and Another Man returning college-ward from Cumnor Hill, came face to face with the Old 
Bounder, on the High. Brickford would have fled down Logic Line, but his enemy was upon him before he realized 
the danger. The Old Bounder seemed delighted to see him once more. "I should like very much, sir," he said with 
grave geniality, " if you could take breakfast with me on Friday morning ; I should like to hear more from you about 
my distinguished friend Dr. Goldwin Smith. Good afternoon, sir ; " and the Old Bounder passed on, with Brickford 
leaning aghast against a shop-window, staring open-mouthed after him. He had noticed, for the first time, the Old 
Bounder's clericals. The Other Man looked at him curiously. 

" Now, who," said Brickford dazedly, looking after the gre~t, gaunt figure as it faded down the gathering twilight of 
the High, "now <who is that bloody old bounder ? " 

It was quite one minute before the Other Man spoke. He wanted Brickford to enjoy what he was to hear. Then 
he said slowly and distinctly : " That bloody old bounder is Canon Bright of Christ Church College, the most 
eminent theologian in Oxford, and one of England's Great Men 1 " 

And all of this is true, because I was the Other Man, and saw part of it, and the rest I had from Brickford himself. 



Smitb-rbe fiero, tbe Hbject, the Triumphant. 

He was acknowledged on all hands the bravest man in the district; 
not so much for his nerve tiger-hunting, or his single-handed ring- 
ing-in a gang of coolies the time they collected to burn the factory 
with the new tea crop in it: not so much for these things, I say, as 
for the cool way he told the senior partner, without turning a hair, 
on his visit to the plantation, that the pickers had left the last tea crop 
days over time on the bushes owing to the fact that he, whose busi- 
ness it was to direct their work, was spending a week over at the fort. 
We all stood listening for the announcement that Smith's services 
were no longer needed on the plantation; but the senior partner must 
have heard somewhere that the visit to the fort was a matter of helping 
the two sound men left nurse the rest of the garrison through the 
cholera, for he merely remarked : 

'" That means a loss of a round fifteen hundred, Mr. Smith. Did 
you pull most of the fellows through ?" And Smith is still with us. 

But Smith was in an abject funk at last, and it had gone on for 
weeks. None of us could help feeling sorry for the poor chap. There 
is nothing sticks in your throat like the sight of a brave man with the 
heart gone out of him. But Smith was not pleasant company in thos? 
days all the same. 

He would get himself up to kill towards 5.30 p.m., and flick the 
unlucky mare nearly crazy all the way to the fort. He wrote home 
to his tailor for a new outfit, though it could not possibly arrive in 
time to help matters. He brought on all the properties all right, but 
he couldn't speak his part. He was hopelessly scared. And she was 
such a wisp of a girl. Upon my soul, it was enough to make a man 
mad to see a fellow like Smith knocked out by her. The major's wife 
set them next each other at dinner. Smith bungled three or four 
answers up to the entrees, and frowned at his plate through the rest 
of dinner. The superintendent gave a dance for them, and we all 
left Smith a free hand for three numbers on end; but he hadn't said 
it when time was called. The doctor tried a ruse to bring him to the 
scratch. The doctor was by way of being a wily fellow and a bit of 
a wag. 

" Smith," he said one evening as we were loafing on the verandah, 
'' I am going over to the fort on Sunday: and if you haven't fore- 
stalled me. by Jove. I'll try a cast myself." 

Smith took his pipe out of his mouth, sat up and looked at the 
doctor, who declares to this day that Smith is a good sort, but 
heavy — heavy; absolutely no sense of humour." It gave me a queer 
turn later, when, the rest of them having turned in, I said : 

" Why don't you ask her, Smith ? The girl would be a fool to 
refuse you." 

— and a growl out of the dark answered: " I'm afraid." Then 
after a pause, " It isn't just the being refused, Smart " — pause — then 

a fierce grating of cane chair-legs on the verandah floor—" but oh, 
damn it, she's such a little thing." 

So he let her go without saying it. We all saw her off, of course. 
Smith's face was a funeral; and she was like a glass of champagne, 
laughing and bantering in wild spirits up to the last. 

" She never cared a rush," snapped Smith suddenly, out of a pro- 
found study of Indian roadside weeds, as he and the Major and I 
dawdled back together. 

" It isn't in her," said I. " You only get that sparkle off a hard 

" They don't generally laugh so much when their hearts are light," 
the Major remarked to nobody. 

Smith turned and looked at him with a gleam in his eyes. Then 
we separated. But her going did Smith a world of good. He began 
to get starch into him from the very first day. It was slow, to be 
sure; but we could see gradually the old look of attention and deter- 
mination coming back to his face. He kept away from the fort for 
over a week, but that was natural. There was nothing there but the 
telegraph office besides the rooms he had been accustomed to see her 
in and the mess, which was not a congenial resort for a time. Still, 
as the days went on, he did brighten up wonderfully; till, at the end 
of about ten, to my immense satisfaction, he announced one Saturday 
that he was going over to see the fellows at the mess. He came back 
in quite the old form, and turned in early, saying he had promised to 
join the Major's wife for a ride at five next morning. 

I went over myself later in the day. There was not a man in the 
mess-room: but a grinning waiter remarked: 

" Think you'll find them all at the Major's quarters, sir." 

There they all were: every blessed officer, both the ladies of the 
fort, the Superintendent and his wife and, in the midst, looking like 
a gleeful lion. Smith— Smith the hero. Smith the abject. Smith the 

"Ha, Smart, come along," shouted the major: "come along and 
explain this fellow's puzzle for us. He won't tell us himself how it 
happened, so you will have to find out for us; though I more than 
half believe my wife here knows it all already. Come and congratu- 
late him. He's a lucky dog. Smith is. a shrewd, lucky fellow." 

Smith came into my room that night and spread a telegram on my 
table. It was dated the night before at Calcutta, and read: "Your 
telegram just received. Ship sails in twenty minutes. Baggage 
already in hold. Captain will send it back from Madras. Will meet 
you in Simla on the 18th. Why didn't you say so before ?" — Nellie. 

She always was a spicy little thing. She is still, but stouter.

'Cbc evolution of Qdilliam Smithy JVIJ3., LL,B. 

Barrister, Solicitor, Notary public, 6tc, 6tc. 

<* W%r 

He was a freshman truly, 

Clear from the wilds of Bruce, 
Boisterous, raw, unruly, 

And his frame was lank and loose. 
He wore high-water trousers 

And a bristling pompadour, 
And lived in a sky-high attic 

With rickety walls and floor. 

Then hurrah for our fostering mother 
That gives of her strong milk 

To make a man of a Mary Ann 
And to robe his limbs with silk ! 

He " grubbed " like a perfect demon 

For five nights out of six, 
But attended the Lit., where he dabbled 

In 'Varsity politics. 
A speech or two and a motion 

When the annual fight began — 
And his rep. was fully established 

As an " influential man." 

So his party gave him an office, 

And back he came next year 
With a stylish suit, and gloves to boot, 

And a taste for pipes and beer. 
He'd had a chrysanthemum hair-cut — 

Gone was the pompadour, 
For he felt that a man must toe the scratch 

As a " leading " sophomore. 

From that time forth his leisure 

Was devoted to girls and sport; 
And his monthly bills grew longer 

As his nightly work grew short. 
But his " old man " had to settle. 

And what though the shekels flew ? 
The second class list each summer 

Showed " Bill was gettin' through." 

And now Bill is a lawyer 

In a bummy one-horse town. 
Where he makes ends meet — or nearly — 

And enjoys some small renown; 
For the county judge comes monthly 

To hold division court; 
And when Bill is " at " a witness 

Folks flock out for the sport. 

One source of regret has William — 

Not. by the way, remorse — 
That his " governor's " business " busted " 

When he got through his course: 
He sorrows that his practice 

Will scarcely set him free 
To add to his other distinctions 

A brand new Ph.D. 

Then hurrah for our fostering mother 

That gives of her strong milk- 
To make a man of a Mary Ann 
And to robe his limbs with silk !

t^be Love of a Classical JYIan* 


H madly, madly do I love ! 

Although I eat and sleep full well, 
But were my love a saint above 
Her present self she'd not excel. 


What must I say in proper praise, 
Of such a precious lady fair ? 

I swear on bright or gloomy days 
I see the same sweet look is there. 

She changes not ; she pains me not, 
As maidens oft are wont to do, 

With talk as soon as said forgot, 
She tells not what she never knew. 


My love is proud and pleasing shy ; 

Her hair is done in Grecian style; 
Oh ! large and wondrous is her eye ; 

She lacketh every female wile. 

Venus de Milo is her name, 

She stands within a lecture-hall : 

A statue she, a worthy flame 
For beauty-lovers one and all. 

-W. T. Allison.
